This HaBO comes from Brandy, who is hoping to find this old school historical romance:
I read this book back in the late 80s or early 90s.
I believe the main characters name is Miranda. I think it takes place in Texas or Mexico, and the heroine is Mexican.
There is definitely a kidnapping. Miranda’s dad is against her marrying the American hero. Her dad was pretty wealthy, I think.
The cover was pale (ecru maybe) with her face and flowers or maybe a ranch scene.
At the time I thought it was steamy but may not be compared to now.
There’s something about the cover description that is ringing bells for me.
