Ok...I read this book in the mid 90s but I don't know when it was published.  I can't remember the name and I know it might be a long shot but...

The cover of the book was red and yellow.  I think the opening scene was The Hero was in jail for something and to get out he has to agree to marry a lady.  I think they (the hero and heroine) had Spanish names and that it might have been set in the time of Santa Ana's Army.  I just wish I could remember the name!

Any help is much appreciated! Thank you!

I read this book! I've now spent the past hour trying to find it in my archive list (the book was sold/swapped/sent to a new home long ago).

I FOUND IT! Beloved Outlaw by Linda Benjamin (go 'head and click the link; it will open in a new window).

LOL..close...but not it :( I so wish I could remember more.  OH!  I remember that the lady had to visit the dungeon like jail and they talked about how his feet were so damaged it was almost impossible to stand or walk on them and that his hair was so dirty that it had lice in it...and he was making friends with the rats.
