Two lost souls entwine in Nora Roberts' Northern Lights. New Chief of Police Nate Burke is a wounded man whose burdens drove him from Baltimore to tiny Lunacy, Alaska, while thorny, independent bush pilot Meg Galloway is haunted by a past of her own, troubled by her father Patrick's supposed abandonment years earlier. After three mountain climbers find Patrick's body frozen in a cave, Nate works to help Meg find her father's killer before death stalks her. His sad eyes, steady compassion and obvious attraction to Meg soften her steely control, and she longs to free Nate of the secrets that torment him. Their search for the truth is fraught with romantic tension as well as danger. Northern Lights is as vivid and compelling as the bold dance of the aurora borealis an evocative page-turner with the irresistible magic of winter snows.
