Dark Within (The Mythical Knights Book #1) by Candice Gilmer

There are monsters, then there are monsters. Which kind wants her dead? 

The Mythical Knights, Book 1

There was a time Marissa van Dyke loved Halloween. Then tragedy struck. Now the sight of a jack-o-lantern only reminds her of what she's lost. In fact, she'd prefer to just hibernate.

But recently her nightmares are becoming too intense to ignore. Dreams filled with horror-movie creatures that come closer to killing her every time. Where these vampires and werewolves are coming from, she doesn't know. She only knows they're relentless.

Neil Drigan has no interest in finding a mate. Bind himself to one woman? No thank you. Permanent is for the wolf pack Alpha--his brother. Yet lately he persistently dreams about running, in full wolf form, to save a beautiful woman who smells of flowers--and death.

At first the woman's identity is a mystery, until he realizes the dreams are a residual imprint of something that really happened. Not only is the woman temptation wrapped in real flesh and blood, she's still in danger. And the one thing he never thought he wanted.

Originally released as "Unholy Night" 2008-2012. Since expanded and fully revamped. (No pun intended, lol. Okay, maybe a little one) 

Warning: Werewolves, vampires, Templar Knights with attitudes, and a girl who must face her biggest fear in order to find love.

My review:
Werewolf Neil Drigan gave his brother and Alpha a hard time when he was trying to woo his mate in Brightest Shadow (The Mythical Knights Book #0.5) by Candice Gilmer. He has no plans to settle down anytime soon. But life is what happens while you are making plans. On the night of the full moon Neil is supposed to be safely locked up in his cage with the rest of his pack but luckily for Marissa van Dyke he slipped his cage making him available to save her from a vicious vampire attack. Now Marissa is dragged into the world of vampires, werewolves, Templars and other Mythicals. Neil has to find a way to help Marissa past her own fears and has to get over his own. These two characters are great and I love the world building by the author. If you want a sweet Halloween story this book fits the bill.
