The Alpha Prince

By: C.T. Sloan

Amy Rousseau is walking on eggshells. As a new employee at the chic Beverly Wilshire Hotel, she has seen three employees get fired for the smallest infractions. Now, the 20-year old concierge must be on her “A” game as a big name guest comes to town.

Known as the “World’s most eligible Royal,” Prince Julian of the tiny Principality of Mondorra is coming to town to sow his wild oats around Beverly Hills and Hollywood. The Prince has booked the entire Penthouse floor of the hotel. And every single hotel employee has been warned that any screw ups will result in immediate termination.

Amy finds herself assigned to cater to the needs of the Prince. When the young woman meets the dashing and impossibly beautiful Prince, her entire body turns to jelly. She can’t help but gawk and stare at the Royal hottie, causing her to lapse in her duties.

Just as Amy is about to be fired, the young Prince scoops her up for some “private” services. Soon, the young girl finds herself serving the Prince at all hours of the night. And Amy soon learns that she is slowly becoming the Prince’s favorite “plaything.”

Now Amy must balance her “day” job as a Beverly Wilshire Hotel employee while performing her “night” assignment as companion of the Prince.

His Royal Secret (Book 1)When I tell people where I work, I am always hit with the same questions, “Which celebrities have you seen? Who are the nicest famous people? Who are the meanest?” To be honest, I can’t really answer any of those questions. I’m too scared right now to think straight.

Being a concierge at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel is one of those jobs that sounds more glamorous than the reality of it. Last week, I had to run to a dry cleaner and pick up a dog sweater for one of our guests. Two days ago, I had to find another guest a pair of XXL underwear at 3:00 in the morning. Don’t ask.

But I can’t complain. I am a 20 year old girl with a job that most people would kill for. And my boss doesn’t hesitate to remind me of that. He likes to remind everyone that he has 100 resumes for every position at the hotel. And trust me, the manager is not afraid to resort to those resumes when an employee displeases him.

Last week alone, three employees were terminated for some really minor infractions. As a relatively new employee at the hotel, I can’t afford to screw up. When my boss asks me to work a double-shift, I never complain. When a drunk “A” list actor vomits on me, as I help him to the elevator, I just smile and change my blouse.

Rumors are that a “Super A-List” guest is coming to the hotel. Everyone is scared out of their minds. The hotel manager seems to be on edge. The employees have been speculating on who could be a “Super A-List” guest. The President? The Pope? Steven Spielberg? We are all left clueless.

At 10:00 a.m., the hotel manager calls a brief meeting with the six on-duty concierge employees. We stand in the breakroom while the manager gives us the breakdown. “At 3:00 p.m. today, the Crown Prince of Mondorra will be arriving at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. He has booked the entire Penthouse floor of the hotel. For those of you who are not up to speed on TMZ, Prince Julian is known as the ‘World’s Most Eligible Royal.’ Our guest will be stalked and hounded by the most aggressive members of the paparazzi. He will also expect the finest service from our staff. There will be zero tolerance for mistakes. The smallest infraction will result in immediate termination.”

Great, I just know I am going to be out of a job by the end of the day. The manager pulls out a piece of paper and begins to read off our individual assignments. It appears that three of us will be assigned exclusively to the needs of the Prince. Oh please, let me off the hook. I don’t want to deal with this guest.

“I want a 24-hour dedicated concierge for the Prince. Robert, you have the night shift 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Mira, you take the 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. shift.” I exhale deeply. Two positions are assigned and my name hasn’t been mentioned yet. There are still four of us left. That leaves me with a 25% chance to escape the “Royal Assignment.” The manager looks at the four of us and then he says, “Amy, you will be assigned to Prince Julian from 3:00-11:00 p.m.”
