This book was published in the 70's or 80's. The women had psychic powers but were bonded to their husbands who they could not disobey. The heroine of the book is bonded to a man (who is the bastard son of one of the rulers) against her will but her unique combination of powers allow her to break free of his control. They then compete in a sort of tournament in order to free the exploited underclass of their world.
