So I read a series of books when I was younger back in the early 90s and I'm trying to remember the author and title of the series. There are like 6 books of the series or more can't remember but each cover has golden tribal like for its border and a new character for each of the books. The female characters had a type of power and the male I believe was her partner, kinda set in kingdom style and they are nobles
Long shot: Sons of Destiny series by Jean Johnson? Three sets of twin brothers in a fantasy kingdom all have to find suitable wives and the men and women end up having complementary magical abilities and ruling a small kingdom.
First book is The Sword
The Sons of Destiny books are from 2007-2010 ish if I'm not mistaken (I could be wrong though)
That is super vague description, but it loosely puts me in mind of the Cheysuli series by Jennifer Roberson, starting with Shapechangers. Different character leading each book, lots of them nobility, magic powers, etc.
Here's a longshot -- Sharon Green's The Blending series?
It's a little out of your date range (the first book, Convergence, published in 1996). The covers were distinctive Thomas Canty artwork with each book showing a portrait of a different character. If I'm recalling correctly (my memories are fuzzy here), the plot(s) have your remembered elements of fantasy kingdom and noble class, but male and female POV characters all had special powers and the character partnerships focused more on group teamwork than one-on-one support.
