HYBRID: Tessa Bailey | Secretly Yours

Please note: the in-person portion of our event with Tessa Bailey has SOLD OUT. 

After consultation with the publisher, we have decided to turn this into a hybrid event, so it will be both in-person and virtual. Over 100 people have signed up for the waitlist and we don’t believe many spots will open for the in-person event.

If you would like to attend this event virtually, please purchase a copy of Secretly Yours below.

24 hours before the event, we will send the link to the Zoom webinar. You will be able to watch the event and submit questions. We will make every effort to balance questions from the in person audience as well as from those attending virtually.

All copies of Secretly Yours will be signed. If you would like Tessa to personalize your copy, please include those instructions (i.e.: Personalize to FIRST NAME) in the comments section during checkout. Please keep this to first name only; we cannot guarantee any other messages.  If you leave that section blank, we will assume that you want your book to be signed only.

You can also purchase signed and/or personalized copies of Angelina's book below.


We are very excited to welcome Tessa Bailey to Houston IN PERSON to celebrate her new novel, Secretly Yours. Tessa will be in conversation with Angelina Lopez.

The publisher requires all event attendees to mask and we have surgical masks on hand if you find yourself without one.

NOTE: This is a TICKETED event. Your ticket will include access to the in person event, and a signed and personalized copy of Secretly Yours. There will also be a signing and photography line. To attend the event, you can purchase a ticket here.

If you CANNOT attend the event and would like a signed/personalized copy, we are happy to help! Please order your book below and mention personalization in the comments section.

About the Author:

#1 New York Times Bestselling author Tessa Bailey can solve all problems except for her own, so she focuses those efforts on stubborn, fictional blue collar men and loyal, lovable heroines. She lives on Long Island avoiding the sun and social interactions, then wonders why no one has called. Dubbed the “Michelangelo of dirty talk,” by Entertainment Weekly, Tessa writes with spice, spirit, swoon and a guaranteed happily ever after. Catch her on TikTok at @authortessabailey or check out tessabailey.com for a complete list of books.
