Waiting on Wednesday: Charming, by Elliott James

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine to spotlight upcoming book releases that we're excited about.

This week's pick:

Release date: September 24, 2013
Publisher: Orbit
Format: Paperback, 400 pages

Goodreads description:
John Charming isn't your average Prince...

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? 

This isn't my usual read but the description sounds really awesome! Definitely not the Prince Charming you're used to. Also, 'a vampire and a blonde walk into a bar'? Count me in. Sounds like mayhem, snark, and fun. The cover doesn't hurt either.
Have you heard of Charming? What do you think of it? Please link me up to your own pick :)
