The Tarnished Jewel of Jazaar (Beasts of the Desert) by Susanna Carr

I won this book from a Goodreads contest.

Compromise is Essential!

3 out of 5 Stars

This story is full of angst. The hero is torn between his tradition country and the international community. The heroine is trapped and abused by her family. The hero's brother just makes everything worse. The heroine being offered to the hero as an insult is just the tip of the iceberg for insults she has to deal with. The heroine is a great help to show the international community that their country isn't too mired in tradition and inflexible. Despite the ways that she helps him accomplish his goals, the hero reverts to being an idiot when his brother arrives and tries to cause problems. I'm glad that after she got out of that bad situation, he was able to come to his senses and support his better half.
