Please help! I'm looking for a historical romance novel that takes place in England (Regency, I think...)

All I remember of the plot is that the couple has been married for a while (like 7 years) and they live as friends because the husband was always in love with someone else. They own/run either a chocolate company or a soap company or something and the story starts when one of them suggests getting a divorce or there was an agreement about how long they would be married and that time is coming to an end (I think...). My vague memory is that the husband realizes at this point that he doesn't want to split up... I thought it might be a candance camp book, but read through all of the book summaries and it isn't. I then checked Mary Jo Putney and don't see it in her book list either...

Ravishing The Heiress by Sherry Thomas. 16 year old heiress Millie is pushed into arranged marriage by title hungry father with 19 year old Earl of Fitzhugh. He has to marry her (needs her money) to save the family estate but is in love with someone else. They agree to live as friends until it is time to produce an heir. The story is told mostly in flashbacks leading up to the time they are supposed to consumate the marriage, beget an heir and then go their seperate ways.
