Top Five Vacation Spots in Colorado by Julia Talbot – Guest Blog

Hey, y’all!

I’m here to give you a first peek to Fangs and Catnip, my very first Dreamspun Beyond from Dreamsinner Press.

Carter is the new manager at the Dead and Breakfast Inn, and he falls for vampire silent partner Fallon, who is sure they don’t need a were-cougar as a manager…

I love the mountains in Colorado, where Dead and Breakfast is set, so I wanted to talk about my top vacation spots there! Here are my top 5.

5. Boulder. Foodies abound, so there’s tons of good food. The shopping is eclectic and amazing, and I love the nature trails and outdoor activities. There’s a comfortable feel to this city, one that makes it easy to kick back and wander.

4. Ouray They call Ouray the Switzerland of the USA, and it’s an amazing high altitude town. A hot spings pool, the Jeep capitol of the US, and goony golf carved right out of the mountain. You can’t lose, and the last time I was there, a herd of deer wandered across the parking lot at the hotel…

3. Estes Park. High above the rest of the state, Estes is the gateway to Rocky Mountain national park. Herds of elk can end up on main street, and there are great shops and restaurants, as well as the haunted Stanley Hotel. My advice is to rent a cabin and hang out for a week or more.

2. Durango. This town nestled just above New Mexico is my go to in Colorado now that I live between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. I love the narrow gauge railroad that leaved there, the Sizzling Siam restaurant, with its two seats and standing counter. I adore the Purgatory ski mountain and the river running right through town. Best, it’s 3 hours away.

1. Glenwood Springs. Oh, y’all. I can’t rave about Glenwood enough. Skiing, rafting, snowmobiling, spas, vapor caves, hot springs, fairy caves, fancy old hotels, bizarre off the grid businesses and people, Hanging Lake, and the amazing Glenwood canyon… It has everything. You should go.

I hope y’all will check out the Dead and Breakfast!



A Dead and Breakfast Novel

A romance worth fighting for—tooth and claw.

Solitary vampire Fallon Underwood gets all the social interaction he needs being the silent partner at the Dead and Breakfast B and B high in the Colorado mountains. Change is hard for Fallon, so when his business partner, Tanner, suggests hiring a new manager for the inn, he’s adamant that they don’t need help, especially not in the form of bouncy werecat Carter Hughes.

Carter is a happy-go-lucky kitty, and he loves the hospitality industry, so the D and B ought to be a great place for him. He falls for Fallon as soon as he picks up one of Fallon’s novels, and begins to woo the vamp with gifts. When Fallon finally succumbs to Carter’s feline charms, the results are unexpected, to say the least. Their mating will have irreversible consequences—for their bodies and their hearts.
