- Where is the most romantic place your hero and heroine have ever been?
John and Krystal first dream of building a home of their own when they visit Tiny Town, a delightful attraction west of Denver in the Colorado foothills.
- Do your hero and heroine have as favorite romantic restaurant?
Prince John delights Krystal with his very pedestrian tastes. He prefers pizza to high cuisine and demands to stop for frozen yogurt whenever he sees a stand.
- Do your hero and heroine have a favorite song?
Of course: John Denver’s Rocky Mountain High. Hence the title, Her Rocky Mountain Highness.
- What’s the most romantic present your hero ever bought your heroine?
He printed all the snaps she had taken and slipped them into a flip-through album called “Our Home.” As they flip through the pictures, the pictures reveal what they hadn’t admitted out loud, their growing love for each other. He also buys her a beautiful silk scarf.
- How soon after meeting the heroine did the hero know she was the one?
On their first full day together, when they were touring Denver’s Butterfly Pavilion.
- Who said, “I love you” first, your hero or your heroine?
While he didn’t say, “I love you,” John got the ball rolling in this exchange: (They are looking inside a miniature house)
He ran his hand down the roof top. “A slanted roof, prepared to let the snow cascade down.” He peered in the sides. “The closed back against the side of the mountain. Large windows in front to look over the mountainside.” He smiled. “A perfect mountain kingdom. All it lacks is a king and queen.”
He leaned toward Krystal and brushed her lips before he came to his senses.

About the book – Her Rocky Mountain Highness:
Krystal Black had helped foreign dignitaries before but never was tempted to join their ranks.
Prince Johann “John” van Koppelberg came to the Colorado Rockies expecting a vacation. He hadn’t planned to fall in love with his tourism director.
But like John Denver, the prince found a home and fell in love. Now if only he could get Krystal and his parents to agree.
