Madeline Hunter, Lady of Sin: the widowed Charlotte and Nathaniel met at a masquerade and had sex; Charlotte knows his identity, but he doesn't know hers, and only gradually realizes it as circumstances drive them to a more intimate relationship. Their normal relationship is one of banter and intelligent argument, which leads to some wonderful exchanges as they get to know each other on more than a surface level--the fact that they were physically intimate pre-book is almost inconsequential to the progress of the romance, though of course their physical attraction to each other doesn't hurt.

I enjoyed the book a lot and promply glommed the rest of the related books. They're serving me well as semi-demanding reading while I'm deep in writing.
