Catherine Airlie Vintage Harlequins

Updated on October 4, 2012

ENGLISH AUTHOR

Catherine Airlie is a pseudonym for Jean S. Macleod , who was born in Scotland. Under both names she wrote books from the 1960's through the 1980's.

Mills and Boon published many romances in the UK and they also started publishing in the United States and Canada. Not all books were published in all countries, so often there are some titles that never made it to the states and were not part of the Harlequin numbered book series. Catherine Airlie is no different. I have provided a list of the non-American published titles on the bottom of the page. I am sure these are books that were renamed for the US, they seem to be completely different. Just a warning, they can be very difficult to find.

I am slowly reading all the vintage harlequins and as I do, I am adding details to the descriptions in bold.

1141 THE VALLEY OF DESIRE

AFRICAN ROMANCE

1170 RED LOTUS

AFRICAN ROMANCE

When Felicity landed on the Canary Islands she knew very little about the relations with whom she was going to live.

SCOTTISH ROMANCE

Christine was of two minds about her future. Although she loved her beautiful, Scottish island home, she wanted to live in the south to follow her career as an artist.

1240 THE GREEN RUSHES

ENGLISH ROMANCE

The wild geese went away that morning and never came again, and with them went the luck of the Corrohans'. Lynn Jeffries already knew the superstition about the Corrohans of Ardclunny when she came to take up her dilapidated heritage. Whatever the reason for the bad luck which hung over the place, the girl determined to restore its fortunes. But she too was a Corrohan and it was not long before bad luck touched her on the shoulder. Her projects at Ardclunny were ill-starred and, even when she fell deeply in love, it seemed her love could lead only along a blind alley. But must an old superstition hold good forever? Lynn, last of the Corrohans to return to Ardclunny, believed that one day the tide must turn.

1258 NOBODY'S CHILD

AUSTRIAN ROMANCE

At the death of Olga Dainton, her 2 daughters were left with no very inspiring prospects. So it was natural that they should welcome the invitation of an old friend to spend a holiday in her castle among the Austrian mountains---particularly as the Countess's letter was seconded by Charles Herrick, that legendary figure in the world of music. For Dawn the journey opened up a new door to her career as a pianist; Christine had no such definite object in view, yet her life, more even than her sister's , was destined to be radically changed by her stay in Schloss Lamberg.

1288 THE LAST OF THE KINTYRES

SCOTTISH ROMANCE

For years, Elizabeth Stanton had wanted to go to Dromore, where her mother had spent all her girlhood. Something about the old romance between her mother and the laird had captured her imagination, colouring her thoughts of two people who had loved and parted and never come together again until it was too late. Now she herself was going back to Dromore--to meet the laird's son. What would he be like? Would he be a reflection of that other young man who had captured her mother's heart? The stage was set for Elizabeth to re-enact her mother's old romance -- yet, in such cases, how often does history repeat itself?
