Life as a Tower Maid: Locked up with the Prince


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I transmigrated into a novel as the maid of a prince who was trapped inside a tower.

It was depressing enough to be locked up in that tower, but the situation that I found myself in as soon as I transmigrated was straight up whack.
The original owner of this body, Rosé, threatened the prince and forced him to kiss her!
To make matters worse, Rosé was completely obsessed with the prince, and while trying to monopolize him, she dies a futile death!
We’re right on track to [death via decapitation] as soon as the prince escapes the tower.

So instead, I offered to make a contract with the prince, aptly titled as ‘The Contract for the Life and Death of Rosé Artius’.
No skinship at all! As long as he guarantees that I’ll live until a ripe old age, I will devote my diligence and loyalty to the prince!
But somehow… the prince’s gaze was a bit dangerous. And inside the tower, we were totally alone.

“Rosé, let’s kiss.”

…How did it end up like this?!

* * *

The breath that lingered on my lips disappeared as the stranger moved away.
I stared at the man who kissed me just now.
Under those dark eyebrows were red eyes that were exceedingly cold.
I was instantly bewitched. I couldn’t look away, as if there was an irresistible force coveting my gaze. Because he’s so handsome.

“Rosé, how long do we have to do this?”

I shuddered as the sweet voice whispered next to my ear. Only then did I come to my senses.
I laughed awkwardly to fill the silence. Ahaha, I really don’t know…

“I-I think we can stop now.”

At my words, Albert grinned. It was the forced, soulless smile of a sales team member. Nonetheless, he was still breathtakingly beautiful.

“Then, can I see it now?”

He took the wand that I had been holding.
In the novel, the maid Rosé always asked for a kiss from Albert in exchange for letting him see the wand.
In short, at this very moment, I was digging my own grave.
…Damn it.

I like this story. The FL is witty, cheerful, and cute. She's also realistic and very relatable ("food is the best", "lazying around as a building owner is my dream", "long live capitalism!"). ML is okay so far, MC mentioned he's going to be a good leader because he can control the people around him emotionally and thus very manipulative if he wants to. I love the way he reacts to every absurdity and flattery that comes out of FL's mouth lol. Seems like he's developing a soft spot for... more>> FL slightly faster than I thought.

Still kinda confuse about FL's background, how the king even found her to be a maid is beyond me. I guess I just need to keep reading~ <<less

It's a good start to what looks like a cliche but very cute story. The opening is a bit exposition heavy. The author definitely should have found some way other than dumping blocks of text to let us know about the FL and the ML I like the FL's reactions and quirky personality dealing with her situation, thumbs up for that. Finally the writing is well organized and clear, if not beautiful or enthralling.

Bottom line there's much worse and thus might well be worth a look

Absolutely loving the heck out of the FL and ML’s relationship. The banter, the teasing, the POVs that really dive into their rational - it all just makes sense ughhhh

yall and the ML can TALK uGH so great, I love how straightforward both of them are, legit I got shy, I had to stop scrolling for a bit

I’m super curious how the author will take the plot, but I’m also perfectly fine just reading about the interactions between the FL and ML hahaha (I mean considering it’s already completed I... more>> might go ahead and MTL it all)

but definitely commend the translation team too! Well written and easy to understand - it really added on to the reading experience and it compelled me to keep reading, will defs be coming back to keep checking for updates haha <<less

I enjoy Korean food. I think it is some of the tastiest in the world. Please be warned, though, that this is one of those novels that spends almost as much time on food descriptions as on plot.

Very charming and warm MC, but she's kinda dull other than her inexplicable talent for cooking. As other reviewers have mentioned, her frankness is her strongest point. No 'kyaaaahh, I don't understand~ Why is he kissing me~~" forced misunderstandings here. When she suspects the Prince's feelings have changed just straight up asks lol.

IRL... more>> all couples ought to have this level of basic communication! It's a must for a real, healthy relationship! <<less

The FL's pov is so... noisy

30 Chapters in and there's barely any plot, just incessant non stop thoughts. I'm sorry, but I'm reading novels for their plots, if I want thoughts I can just stare at the ceiling and I can drown in my own thoughts just fine, thanks.

1-3 Chapters of world building and back stories would suffice or at intervals is fine, but 30 Chapters is overkill, bfr. It's just too much.

And I get that the ML is hot. I GET IT, For real, for real. Like it's in... more>> every other sentence, it's hard to miss. Please let's move on. Let's discuss about magic, about dark magic, curses, mages, dragons. Anything, other than how hot the ML is. We get it.

The translation is superb though, so props to the translator. <<less

A single chapter nearly made me tear up. I can't believe t'was the end of that guy.
This story is really straight-forward, it takes into consideration the fastest way to triumph about being with the other party but also emphasizes the inner struggle between rationality as well as insecurity. Eng. 55 Kor. 73

Just started reading this few days ago and I can't believe that I'm already in the latest chapter translated! XD I am so intrigued on how the story will unfold in the next chapters... So much excitement and totally love the interaction of our dear MC & ml! The way they communicate to each other is so good! So much fluff ~ heart fluttering moments + the tensions that builds up too! Especially the mysteries that are still to be unveil along the way. Thank you so much Translor-sama for... more>> keeping up this work! It's so good! I can't express how much I'm super enjoying this story! The choices of words, the delivery to convey the emotions between the leads are so amazing! Clear and easily comprehensible to read. Also Thank you Thank you ofcourse to Author-sama for this amazing story! Fighting for more chaps in the future ^_^ <<less

This was difficult to read through. The MC, despite knowing that her life is on the line, can't seem to take her situation seriously. I suppose this was supposed to have comedy but the delivery is terrible. It's like an attendee giggling at a funeral. There's also the reused & recycled thirst paragraphs that's just all about how hot the ML is.

The truth is, I'm captivated by this novel with just by a few chapters. Less than 10 chapters I think, but I'm already falling hard for this novel. Its funny and cute and refreshing. Definitely my type of rom-com novel.

FL is the witty kinda type, I love love her! :D Also love her interactions with the ML. They're so soooo cute together. My fav couple~~

p.s: the FL loves to eat and cooks and it mentions lots of korean food and it was midnight when I read this....I'm craving help me.

It was an ok story tbh. I liked the premise but didn't enjoy the stagnant personalities of the FL and ML. I feel like everything was kind of too easy for them and while I wouldn't say FL is a Mary Sue I feel like the story gives off that kind of vibe. I liked how mature the two characters were though. Both of them were very clear with each other and there weren't too many misunderstandings.

This... one of the reasons... reading pov feels off. XD when the MC is in the middle of talks and her thoughts.. (too much monologue i’d say) in reality she’s in daze haha! Absent minded... Most of it I skimmed the pages..

Her monologue must happen before after the active-scenes.

5☆☆☆☆☆ for the translation.

It's an entertaining story, especially with a relatable MC. Despite being slowly interested romantically and sometimes acting too casual to the prince, she understand her position as a maid.
