Charming by Elliot James

Charming is an urban fantasy adventure featuring John Charming, a protagonist with a couple of twists.

Book Description:  He comes from a line of Charmings -- an illustrious family of dragon slayers, witch-finders and killers dating back to before the fall of Rome. Trained by a modern day version of the Knights Templar, monster hunters who have updated their methods from chainmail and crossbows to kevlar and shotguns, he was one of the best. That is-- until he became the abomination the Knights were sworn to hunt.
That was a lifetime ago. Now, he tends bar under an assumed name in rural Virginia and leads a peaceful, quiet life. One that shouldn't change just because a vampire and a blonde walked into his bar... Right?

While this one will have a more specific audience than some books, it is a pastiche of dark comedy, paranormal, urban fantasy, and adventure story.  I enjoyed the humor.  :)

Mythic monsters, vampires, Valkyries, Knights Templar...
