To hate and to scold....
Derek Chambers, Marquess of Whitlock, has a problem: his wife. She is the single most horrifying aspect of his life, and the only thing he has ever enjoyed about her are their truly spectacular fights. As such, he prefers having as little to do with her as possible. So when she unexpectedly summons him to London, he surprises himself by going, and finds his life turned upside down in ways he never thought possible.
To loathe and to perish....
Katherine despises her worthless and irritating husband, and nothing bothers her more than the fact that he actually came to London when she sent for him. Worst of all, now that he has come, she needs him to stay. With her. And with his every smile making her heart race, she begins to wonder if there could be more to him than meets the eye.

Impotent hero/sexless heroine
This is good for anyone that hates sex. Or anyone that thinks it's really nice when 2 gay people can make a match and live a happy life together.
No, only if I want to suspend any sense of reality
nothing very special
It's too boring, so anyone could be cut from this novel, even the h/h.
I don't like authors that can't/don't write a love scene in a romance. If you can't do that , then write another type of book. It makes me think that this author is an old-fashioned thinker , that believes sex is dirty, so doesn't want it in a romance. 2 married people, that are in love and have a responsibility to produce an heir, just go to their separate empty beds after kissing and spending a wonderful evening together. I kept waiting for them to admit they were not heterosexual and then get a divorce...it was too unbelievable.
Love grows slowly
Yes - I would recommend it with the caveat that no men of rank who lived in the time of this story would ever have indulged in - or lowered themselves to - physical labor. I do not see how this anachronistic detail was essential to the story but perhaps the author wanted the hero to be able to show off his physique through a sweat-soaked shirt.
The two protagonists played off each other very well. Moira, from the first in the Arrangements series, played a catalyst role in getting them to see one another in a different light
Two were very affecting: When Derek watched and listen to Kate play the pianoforte and the picnic where the two of them gazed at the clouds and the sky.
Their last, ferocious fight and its aftermath of regret and sorrow in Derek and Kate.
