If you love Nora Roberts (or even if you aren’t familiar with her work) Northern Lights sounds like a great movie.  From,

In the Nora Roberts movie "Northern Lights," former Baltimore policeman Nate Burns (Eddie Cibrian) was hoping to start a new life by accepting the job of chief of police in the town of Lunacy, Alaska. He escapes to the small, remote town in an effort to forget the traumatic death of his partner, for which he holds himself partially responsible. But the moment he meets Meg Galligan (LeAnn Rimes), an independent and feisty bush pilot with her own demons, he finds himself falling for her. The town is rocked when the body of Meg’s father, a man who Meg believed had abandoned her and her mother Charlene 16 years ago, turns up in a mountain cave. Nate finds himself in the middle of a high-profile murder investigation and quickly learns the killer is someone in the community. Nate must use his big-city survival instincts to solve the mystery that threatens his new life and new love.

It’s rumored that LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have had an affair either during the filming of Northern Lights or since the completion of filming have had an affair.  I however, don’t believe everything I read. has a video that they claim is Rimes and Cibrian in a restaurant, and even title the video – LeAnn rimes and Eddie Cibrian Makeout Video.  Personally, I don’t think you can tell who the couple are from the video.  But Rimes and Cibrian make the cover of US magazine – and I can’t help but think that this publicity helps Nora Roberts and Northern Lights.
