Wait, do we know for sure that Bruce and Miranda have never met before the charity ball? If he was actively a part of taking the energy project during the first 5 years of the time gap and only became a recluse for the last 3, wouldn't he have at least met Miranda before at meetings and such? I mean she's on the board of W.E. I really thought the implication was that they had casually known one another, but obviously Bruce hadn't seen her in at least 3 years.

On the contrary, Talia quite clearly states that vengeance "is merely a reward for her patience". She looks at that as the cherry on top.
Not saying she had any real feelings for Bruce though. If that were the case she wouldn't have told Bane she wanted him to feel the fire of 12 million souls he failed. She could have been physically attracted to him while hating his guts though.
