Really enjoyed this novella. It should be in an adventure-romance category. Maggie was a bit prickly at first, but I liked that about her. She had reasons to be skeptical and wary of men. Mace was smart, tough, and take-charge. It was nice to see how they treated each other under pressure. They were caring and sweet and focused on what they needed to do to get out of the canoe-trip-from-hell. It actually turned out to be a great test for their relationship. Smexy scenes were VERY HOT! I read this in one sitting and highly recommend.
