Caught by Love
Caught by Love is #162 in the Bantam series and was published in September 1982. The Marquis of Broome leaves London to buy some horseflesh and while he's on this journey, realizes that he's picked up a hidden passenger: Cara. Cara is running away from her guardian and an arranged marriage, but he manages to find them and forces them into an unwanted marriage.
This cover shows our hero serving the heroine while she sits in an ornate bed. He holds a tray on which sits two wine glasses and carries a bottle of wine in his hand. Done by an unknown illustrator, it doesn't have a risque feel to it. He does get the heroine's short haircut correct, though!
