I used to like Kathleen Woodiwiss, when I was 15 and first read "Shanna", which I consider the best of her books...but the rest of her novels in my opinion, truly stink, they are way too clogged with superfluous detail upon detail, and thus take forever to read...the plot is spelled out in excrutiating detail, & drags on and on with descriptions of EVERYTHING before you actually get to any one character's motivations and/or emotions, not to mention interactions between characters -- there is so little of this that her books just stop are so busy reading these boring bits before you hit anyone even having a conversation! Ms. Woodiwiss really needs to cut out the fat & write a romance novel that hums along, not drags its feet. Having said that about her books in general...THIS book was particularly affected by these qualities, and thus, for me, it dragged on & on, I found myself skipping forward in a desperate effort to find out if the story was actually MOVING. But it never did. What a snooze.

I nearly put this book down because I got tired of waiting for Maxim to enter the story. With the exception of a brief appearance in the beginning, we don't see him again until page 148! His friend Nicholas was okay to lead off the story I guess, but did the author have to go on and on about this guy? I could have cared less about his boring relationship with Elise, because HE wasn't the hero, it was going nowhere and the reader knew it. A hundred or so pages of this was really getting on my nerves. This was the reason I couldn't give this book 5 stars. After that, the story was GREAT, one of the best love stories ever. So yes, it's well worth the irritation to get through the beginning. Maxim was one of the best heros ever. Handsome, witty, very masculine, and very respectful of Elise. The author did a great job of making us believe Maxim had a natural respect for women in general. It was subtle, but very well done. Take for example when Maxim finds Elise in a seedy tavern. Read what he says to her when they're leaving. Most heros would have berated the heroine mightily for being there.
I think it was also very clear that Maxim and Elise were very much in love. She was great, witty, too, especially with Fitch and Spence. I don't usually like books where the hero starts out having lost all his riches, but Maxim was so great a character, I was able to overlook that. He and Elise are one of the best couples in romance!

A found this book pretty funny and I really enjoyed the heroine. It's hard to find a heroine so fiesty, yet as intelligent as Elise was.
~ Elise Radbourne has been abducted by accident and dragged from her somewhat comfortable home in England, despite the continuous fued between her family and her, but comfortable none-the-less across icy land and icy waters to Germany to await her fate by two bumbling kidnappers! When she discovers who her captor is, she is shocked! He is supposed to be dead! By the Queen's men!
Maxium Seymour has become a man without title and lands nor country since Queen Elizabeth had stripped him of his wealth for plotting against her. She had been informed by her agents that he had been trying to unsurp her of her throne. He isn't guilty and has escaped his own death and is now hiding in Germany until he can prove his innocence. In the meantime, he finds his fiance has remarried so soon after his reported death and he wants revenge! Revenge so badly, that he sends two of his men to kidnap his finace Arabella Stamford, also the daughter of the very man who has set him up for the plotting of the Queen's death! When he arrives in a rundown castle in Germany, where his men are holding his fiance, he is shocked to find Arabella's cousin instead!
A battle of wills immediately erupts and Maxium must keep his head before Elise uses her tricks and traps to completely drive him insane! He cannot let her go home since the waters are frozen now and the weather has trapped the battling pair in the crumbling, drafty, worn-out castle ad Elise will make sure he knows, JUST how mad she is.
The battle of wills soon turn from hate and sly planning to unnerve the other one in an effort to win points, to a battle of each losing their hearts.

All the wonderful elements of a truly memorable romance that I've come to expect in Woodiwiss's books were missing in "So Worthy My Love." For an adventure - suspense story, it was burden down with words. The rhythm and mix was off. But worst of all the hero's character was less appealing than his subordinate's character, Nicholas. Infact neither hero nor heroine were as charming as most of Woodiwiss's characters, like those in "The Flame and The Flower" or "The Wolf and The Dove." In "So Worthy" the dialogue sounded like a mediocre Shakespearian wannabe penned it. While I know the story took place during Elizabeth's reign, when Shakepeare actually wrote, trying to mimic the language of the day did not serve this book well. Unfortunately, beneath all the disappointing features of this book lies a clever idea for a good book. I hope the author will revisit this concept with another attempt.
