Louisa decides to close the Bentinck for a few weeks and head to the seaside for a bit of a holiday. She's purchased a property next to the aristocratic Cowes yachting club and the boisterous presence of her guests is not very welcome by the staid members of the club. In fact, hostilities break out after Louisa overhears Lady Blenkiron describe her as running a bordello. Charlie Haslemere finds himself in the middle as he is a member of the club but also Louisa's good friend. He arranges for a meeting between the factions in the hope of working out a satisfactory solution. At Louisa's villa, he is also spending a great deal of time with the beautiful Irene Baker, a dancer and star of the stage. Written by garykmcd
