SECRET Sweepstakes Official Rules

Live it up in the town where S.E.C.R.E.T. – the new novel by L. Marie Adeline – takes place. Stay at the luxurious Hotel Monteleone in the heart of the French Quarter, and take part in FestiGals®, an empowering girl’s weekend festival celebrating food, fun, fashion and culture.

Everyone has their secrets, fantasies and desires – some that they can hardly admit to themselves. In L. Marie Adeline’s scintillating novel, S.E.C.R.E.T., readers discover what happens when one woman embraces those fantasies and brings them to life.

The first in a new series, S.E.C.R.E.T. represents the next level in erotica: sexy, sophisticated, and empowering. Now, one lucky grand prize winner will win a trip to New Orleans to travel between June 20 and 23rd during the FestiGals® girls weekend and can bring up to three travel companions with her! Offering you the chance to experience all the city of New Orleans has to offer with your closest friends, the sweepstakes is inspired by the publication of S.E.C.R.E.T., which takes place in New Orleans.
