About the book:

Nothing burns as bright as the flames of the refiner’s fire.

Moments after hearing the Council sentence her enemy to life imprisonment for attempted murder and illegal use of magic, Darcy is whisked away by the Fates—accused of tampering with destiny. The cherished dream she shared with Mason has been called into question, placing doubt about whether they are actually true mates. To resolve it, a price must be paid—the Heart or Death—a grueling series of tests designed to reveal a person’s worth.

The stakes are high and Darcy finds herself facing the unknown in conditions that leave her more vulnerable than she’s ever been. Separated from Mason and her Pack, with Devlin as her only companion, she is pushed to her very limits. She must succeed—or lose everything.

Will she crumble under the pressure or emerge stronger for testing fate?

Alright folks what you are about to read next is my interview with Mason of the Mystic Wolves Pack. Grinning and yes he is as sweet and swoonworthy as he is in the books.  So swoon away.  

Q: Alright Mason, what was the first thought that flashed through your mind when you laid eyes on Darcy for the first time?

Mason: The first thing? That I was looking at my mate, and no other woman would ever compare. She was so beautiful, like a vision, and the next day when I found out she was my blind date, I knew we were destined. The Fates brought us together, and I’d be damned if I let anyone or anything tear us apart. Darcy is my whole world. I’m nothing without her.

Q:  Did you ever get jealous of Darcy and Devlin’s friendship, I mean before you found out his true identity?

Mason:  Never. That’s the thing about being in a committed relationship and trusting the one you love. You can’t fake the kind of connection Darcy and I have—the loyalty and respect. When she tells me she loves me, I believe her. I’m secure in myself and us enough not to entertain jealousy. Besides, I’ve known Devlin for a while. He’s honorable, and has done nothing but protect Darcy. His intentions are my intentions—to keep her safe and happy.

Q:  Can you give us a glimpse into future plans for you and Darcy and the pack you may be able to tell your fans?

Mason:  My future plan is enjoy married life with my beautiful mate, and keep the Pack safe from any further threats. Life as a werewolf can be unpredictable *chuckles* so here’s hoping the worst is behind us. Who knows what our lovely author has in store for us, though. I’ve been telling Belinda I’d like some swoony nights of romance, maybe a baby. Can you imagine my Darcy pregnant? Or the children we could have together? *grins* A little girl just like her Momma. Yeah, my future plans involve living happily ever after … as soon as Darcy processes the huge bomb-shell Devlin dropped on her.

Q:  What emotions and thoughts surfaced when you saw who your companion was for your trials?

Mason: It was indescribable. Of course, I can’t talk too much about it. It’s still kind of raw seeing them and I’d hate to spoil it for those who haven’t read Testing Fate. All I can say is it was needed, and the time together healed my heart.

Q:  Are you mad at the fates for intervening and subjecting you and Darcy to these trials?

Mason:  Of course, wouldn’t you be? Not so much subjecting me to their trials, but the woman I love. Going in blind and not being there to protect her, drove me insane. It went against ever instinct I hold as a man, wolf, and Alpha. Add the fact it wasn’t even our fault there was an issue . . . yeah, mad is an understatement. But what could I do? I believe when a problem surfaces, you have three choices: argue, hide, or face it head on. I was proud of Darcy’s courage in facing the unknown. It showed me exactly what kind of character she has, and why I always believed she was the one for me. Even though it was a risk, faith told me we’d get through it. Anger wouldn’t resolve it, only action. It’s a philosophy I apply to being an Alpha.

Thanks for having me on your site today, Diana *grins, shaking the hand you offer* You’ll have to stop by Woodside Hollow sometime. Maybe come the next time we have a BBQ!

Now my thoughts on Testing Fate 

Mason and Darcy must do the inevitable to ensure there mate status is upheld by the fates. Would you go above and beyond for your love even if it meant death.  Darcy holds steadfast to her beliefs through every trial and tribulation the fates put before her and she must do it by herself. So what does the future hold for this couple that is something I shall not divulge? But I promise it does not stop there. The author once again throws a cliffhanger in our direction, one that will have you saying whaaaaaaaaa. With this last cliffhanger I wonder what wild ride Belinda will be taking us on next time.
