Disclaimer: At the request of the author and Pump Up Your Book! Virtual Book Publicity Tours, a Kindle edition of this book was sent, at no cost to me, for my honest review and participation in the virtual book tour event. 

Virtual Book Tour Event: On Wednesday, December 14, 2011, in association with Pump Up Your Book! Virtual Book Publicity Tours, Barbara participated in a virtual book tour event with an Author Guest Post on Jersey Girl Book Reviews. Book Description:

A WORKING GIRL JUST HAS TO BLOW HER LID ... Using her quick wit and take-charge attitude, Miranda Stiltgaard lands a marketing job for Stuart Golf Enterprises in Chicago determined to prove a well-educated girl raised in a small Alaskan town can succeed in a big city.

WHEN ACCUSED OF A CRIME SHE DIDN'T DO ... Embezzlement of company funds sends aloof London Bachelor, Keegan Stuart, roaring into Chicago to ferret out a thief and protect the family business. 

THEN RISKS HEARTBREAK TO BOOT ... Miranda hates that this unreadable Brit sees her as a backwoods frontierswoman dragging bear home for dinner. Or that she's capable of a crime. But if it's a fight he wants, she'll show him how it's done. Never does Keegan expect a woman of fortitude to rock his resolve and steal his heart ... a heart he doesn't intend to lose. 

My Book Review:

What if you moved from a small town to the big city and wanted to prove that you could make it on your own ... could you do it? Now add into the mix an anonymous letter sent to the company owners suggesting that there is a company thief, and you and your boss are under suspicion by the company owners, who also happens to be your boss's half-brothers? And if that isn't enough, not only do you have to prove that you and your boss are innocent of the company theft, but you also find yourself becoming attracted to one of the half-brothers? Come take a stroll into Miranda Stiltgaard's life, and see if she is able to solve the mystery of the company theft, and capture the heart of Keegan Stuart in Teed Up For Love!

Miranda Stiltgaard left the small fishing town of Seward, Alaska to become the marketing coordinator at Stuart Golf Enterprises in Chicago, Illinois. This was her chance to strike out on her own, and gain the independence that she was determined to achieve. Six months into her position, she maintains everything in the marketing department, including covering for her boss, Bill Perry. Bill has her doing personal errands for him, and dog sitting his small white West Highland Terrier named Malcolm, while he flies off for a weekend of gambling in Las Vegas. Miranda has a surprise waiting for her when she goes to Bill's apartment to stay for the weekend, she comes upon two men and a woman staying in the apartment! She has come face to face with Stuart Golf Enterprises' co-owners, Bill's half-brothers, Nigel and Keegan Stuart. The Stuart brothers' corporate headquarters is in London, England, and these two Brits are stodgy and no-nonsense type of guys. They came to Chicago to look into a new venture, and check on rumors circulating around Bill's business ethics and gambling, after they received an anonymous letter implicating that someone in the company was embezzling money from the company Stonehenge Fund (pension fund). 

The Stuart brothers fire Bill and send him home to the UK for some "rehab," and Keegan takes over control of the marketing department. He comes up against a very feisty and angry Miranda, when she finds out that both Bill and herself are implicated and being investigated for the theft of the missing funds, and they have called in the FBI to help in the investigation! Determined to clear both their names, Miranda will stop at nothing to solve this case! She also has become attracted to Keegan, and the attraction is mutual, what ensues is a sizzling sexual tension that is befitting the historical romance books that she is addicted to reading, but will it last? Step into Miranda and Keegan's world, see how the pension fund theft mystery is solved, and if they can build a lasting relationship that stretches across the pond. 

Teed Up For Love is a fast-paced fun contemporary romance novel, that has a mixture of mystery and sizzling romance that will keep a romance fan turning the pages. I really enjoyed the storyline, I thought it was well written and entertaining. I loved the characters, their different personalities were very engaging and easy to relate to. The sizzling chemistry between Miranda and Keegan had me captured, I loved reading how their mutual lustful attraction led them on a steamy romantic dance towards each other, it was sigh worthy. This is an enjoyable book that has humor, passion and even some sad emotional parts that will tug at your heartstrings. For romance and chick-lit fans, this book is a must read that will fulfill your expectations!
