The Paradise, Series 2 Episode 1 of 8

A year has passed and the Paradise is struggling to survive without its charismatic owner, Moray. When Moray jilted Katherine and chose Denise, Lord Glendenning's vengeance was swift. He took ownership of the Paradise and Moray was cast out. For a year, Denise and Moray were separated. Moray worked in Paris whilst the Paradise struggled.

In the wake of the scandal, and for reasons that remain a mystery to her, Denise was permitted to stay at the Paradise. Ripped apart the moment their love was declared, Denise has only Moray's letters and her brave determination to survive. Meanwhile, Lord Glendenning and Katherine vanished from the city - there were tales of travelling, madness, Katherine's demise from a broken heart, and a cacophony of scandal.

Lord Glendenning instructed his agent to sell the Paradise, and Dudley is devastated when his last hope to invigorate sales ends in grief.

Now unforeseen forces bring Moray back and the lovers are reunited. Displaying his renowned enigmatic flair, Moray shuts the doors of the Paradise for a day, hoping to create a fever of gossip in which to launch a grand sale of exotic goods from his travels. But their elation is fleeting as the shock arrival of Katherine and her new husband Tom Weston sends everybody spinning. And when the grand opening is threatened by sabotage, Denise's suspicions lead her to an uncomfortable discovery.

Meanwhile, Miss Audrey, no longer content with the stasis of her relationship with Edmund, is pushed into doing something about it.
