A couple of  romances that I recall if you read series romances

Ex Marks the Spot - Merlin Lovelace

The Vow - Rebecca Winters - not exes but marriage on the way out

Don't know if you want cute but -- Seduction of His Wife by Janet Chapman though that one they are married but he's never met her.

Probably my favorite of that genre is "Veils of Silk" the 2nd in Mary Jo Putney's "Silk trilogy".  Ross and Juliet.  But...it takes place in the Victorian era-BUT not in England-the Middle East actually.

Some of my favorites, off the top of my head:

Seducing Simon by Maya Banks- The hero and heroine have been friends for a long time

That Scandalous Evening by Christina Dodd- Historical, set in the regency. Several years before the book starts the heroine ruined herself after having a giant crush on the hero

Honest Illusions by Nora Roberts- probably my favorite pre trilogy Nora Roberts.  the hero and heroine are rival magicians who grew up together and have a past

Hot Finish by Erin McCarthy- The hero and heroine are divorced.I haven't read it yet, but I enjoyed her first two NASCAR books.

Last Night's Scandal by Loretta Chase- late Georgian/ probably creeping up on Victorian.  The hero and heroine have been friends since they were children.  She creates chaos and he craves order.  He hasn't seen her in years when the story starts

Sadly set in the Victorian Era, but only partly in England Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas is one of my favorites in the genre.  the hero and heroine are divorced.

Thought of another one...it's wish listed...Eileen Dreyer's "Barely a Lady".  Set right after Waterloo.  Heroine in this one is fabulous.  Couple are divorced...but hero doesn't remember them getting divorced.  It's the start of a trilogy for the author and the first historical she's done.

Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas

My favorite, too.  Such a great novel.

Another that just might work for you is When the Duke Returns by Eloisa James.  The H and H are married when they are very young, have not met until recently when he returns to England from the Orient.  Well, really it is not what you are asking for, but a great book sorta like it......LOL

I've read That Scandalous Evening by Christina Dodd. It is a good book but parts of it are extremely sad.

For a light read about friends to lovers that I absolutely loved try Sarah Mayberry - Blaze book but I cant remember title.  The Guy in the book's name was Sam so you should be able to find it easily.
