Although it's not a contemporary, AGAIN THE MAGIC, by Lisa Kleypas, is a one of my favorites. Once you run out of contemporary recommendations, you may want to give it a try. It was a good one!

I've revised my original post

Not sure if you like paranormal / fantasy genre but 2 books that I absolutely adore are Meljean Brook's 'Demon Forged' and Erin Kellison's 'Shadowman'. They are both part of a series but can be read as stand alone. I also love Shana Abe's 'The Smoke Thief'.

More contemporaries that I like:
Wanting something more - Kathy Love
Falling for Gracie - Susan Mallery

Oh, I almost forgot: Jane Austen's 'Persuasion'....! Sheesh.. Can't believe I forgot this. I've only read the book & watched the movie, like, a hundred times Smile

Line of Scrimmage - Marie Force (contemporary)

This is one of my favorite themes too. Although I'm not a fan of this author, I got this a few months ago at bargain pricing (price has gone back up Sad ) because of the theme and was pleasantly surprised! Although the hero is a quarterback for a major football team, the book is more centered around the romance. Although not a perfect book, a very good read.

Again the Magic by Lisa Kleypas: One of my absolute favorites for this theme. Hero and heroine fell in love as teenagers but were separated by heroines father. Hero returns a decade or so later.

Seduce me at Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas: Doesn't quite fit into this theme because hero and heroine were not lovers but they've been in love for over a decade and finally start a relationship.

Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas: Historical, takes place primarily in India but hero and heroine are both from Victorian England.

One Night For Love by Mary Balogh: Hero believes heroine is dead and is about to marry someone else when she shows up.

Almost Like Being in Love by Christina Dodd: Contemporary romantic suspense

Rules of Attraction by Christina Dodd: Historical romance, hero tricks heroine into accepting a position as a companion and when she gets there she finds out she's really been hired by her estranged husband.

The Duchess of Mine by Eloisa James: Hero and heroine have been estranged for several years and there's been infidelity on both parts but they find there way back to each other.

Fool for Love by Eloisa James

Your Wicked Ways by Eloisa James: Hero and heroine have been estranged for several years and hero has been unfaithful. This is not one of my favorites as I don't feel hero ever fully repented.

Forget Me Not by Elizabeth Lowell: Contemporary romance but not the best.

The Chase by Erin McCarthy: Contemporary romance also not the best.

A lot of Linda Lael Miller contemporaries follow this theme. Two that come to mind:

Montana Creeds: Dylan by Linda Lael Miller: Contemporary romance, okay not great.

McKettricks of Texas by Linda Lael Miller: Contemporary romance, okay not great.
