This fourth book in the series is as interesting as the other three and focuses on building the overall story further. I really liked that the somewhat mysterious dragon shifters get to play a bigger role. With the addition of vampires, most of the mythical beings I can think of have now made an appearance. The stage seems set for a grand finale...

Jared is the werewolf (Loren and Flame's younger brother). He was happy to find his mate at the end of book #3, but is now devastated because the dragon shifter returns to China - and doesn't come back to him. Jared feels betrayed and when he is finally attracted to another man, he pulls back. The combination of past hurts and the idea that a werewolf only has one mate (even though that was shown to be wrong by Loren) holds him back.

Zongxian is the dragon shifter who wants nothing more than to be with Jared. But his sense of honor requires him to return to China. His punishment is so severe, it made me cry out at the injustice of it. There is a lot wrong with a society that has laws as strict as the dragons'. The potential for more drama as that group sorts out its internal differences and advances to a more just way of handling things is enormous.

Tomas, a vampire who starts out as an assassin, grows the most in this book. He changes from someone who follows orders to thinking for himself (motivated by having found his mates) and, in many ways, is the key to normalizing Jared and Zongxian's relationship. The way he and the vampire nation are portrayed isn't very flattering (initially), much like the snakes and dragon shifters used to be.

So far, each of the books has not only contributed its piece to the overall story, but has also added depth and understanding of each of the 'bad guy' races. Seen through the eyes of the main characters and their developing relationships, Scarlet takes us on a journey of discovery that is more than 'just' a love story. The examination of prejudice adds yet another layer to this multi-faceted world. I can't wait for the next book! ( )

I enjoyed this latest installment of the Deadly Mates series. We have wolf shifter abandoned by his mate after one quick meeting, a vampire assassin commanded to kill our hero, and a dragon forced into hibernation with no way of communicating with his mate. Added to this mix magic amulets, powerful politics, and deadly enemies, and you have an entertaining novel of love, magic and hot sex. So was this a deep novel? No... Did it keep my interest? Yes... Will I read the next one in the series the day it comes out? Yes... ( )
