Testing Fate By Belnda Boring

 Testing Fate Blog Hop

Join me today as I welcome amazing author Belinda Boring to my blog. She is an inspiring author who creates such worlds with her words that you cannot help but be drawn in and get desperate waiting for more. Be sure to stay till the very end as I have included a personal interview with Belinda Boring and there is a rafflecopter you can enter. Good luck and happy reading, I hope you enjoy :)


This series has by far captured my attention. I literally watch and wait for the next book to come out. Mason and Darcy, are one of my favorite couples to read about and no matter what I know reading anything involving them, is going to bring a smile to my face, and possible shed a few tears along the way.  
Testing Fate did just well as leaving me in such a place, where my heart is pacing in my chest waiting to find out more....I mean, Belinda left it on such a cliffhanger that I might as well go gliding until the next book. 
 In the third book we learn if love can find a way, no matter what. Through any obstacle and withstand any trial, as long as you love someone you can make it through....or can you. Surely you don't think I am going to give it away do you....I know better than that.  You are gonna have to buy the book to find out for yourself.
But believe me when I say you are gonna want to buy all 3 books and start from the beginning. If you miss ANY of this series, you are going to regret it in more ways than one because one day these book will be looked back upon and still be talked about in the future. 
The trials and lessons that Darcy goes through just to be with the one person she can never see herself without is heart wrenching at times, but also can push you into believing in true love and happy ever after. 
The stories are filled with such feeling, such emotion that you can't help but feel what they feel, go through what they do as you r reading it. Not to mention the characters are so well written you will find yourself falling in love with them more than anything, and by the end of book one you THINK you have a favorite, but that can all change as you read 
Do yourself a favor and get this series. You will not regret it and you will definitely be saying thanks.

Forget Me Not – Book #2
Blurb: Only a fool would think they could steal from a werewolf …

Anticipating a quiet night alone with the man she loves, Darcy’s world is sent into a spin with the arrival of someone from the past—Mason’s. She is further shocked by the intruder’s claim she may not even be the true mate of the Mystic Wolves Alpha. Accusations start to fly, leading to her new enemy being granted asylum, and this is just the beginning of trouble.

Relying on the reassurances of Mason and the support of her friends and Pack, Darcy soon falls under attack. Suspicions are raised, and with no other choice, she must flee with Devlin to safety where hopefully they can untangle the lies hidden behind the use of magic. Time is quickly ticking away, leading to a showdown where everything is on the line. 

They need to uncover the truth before it’s too late, or once again, Darcy will need to fight to hold onto her dreams.

Testing Fate – Book #3
Blurb: 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?

And for the best part I have included an interview with Belinda Boring herself, I hope you enjoy, and remember get the books!!!


1) What is the working title of your current/next book?

*grins* The current book I’m working on is my first New Adult contemporary romance called Loving Liberty. It’s scheduled for release next month (July 2013) and I’m beyond excited to share it with everyone! It’s also the first book I’ve written that isn’t paranormal or urban fantasy, so I can’t wait to see what readers think.

My next books I’m working on are Forever Changed (#4, in the Mystic Wolves series) and Jagged Edges (another New Adult contemporary) I’m planning on them being ready by the end of this year. I have a few other titles I’m outlining and brainstorming on, as well. It’s never ending!

But, we’re here talking about my last release, Testing Fate. It’s the third book in the Mystic Wolves series, and my favorite to date!

2) Where did the idea come from?

I can’t remember how I came up with the idea for the Fates testing Darcy and Mason. Most times, story ideas come when I’m driving because my brain isn’t being bombarded with a ton of thoughts. I also have a magic shower *grins* I’ll get a spark of inspiration and by the time I’m finished, the story is all laid out and ready to write.

3) What genre does your book fall under?

Testing Fate is a paranormal romance—with werewolves, vampires, and witches … oh my! Haha sorry, I couldn’t resist. In this book, you’ll also find the Greek Fates causing trouble.

4) What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?

I’d LOVE to see these actors:
Mason – Chris Pine

Darcy – Emma Stone

Devlin – Matt Bomer

Daniel – Tom Hardy

5) What is the one-sentence synopsis of your series?

That’s tricky because there’s so much involved with the Mystic Wolves. How about … Their love defies all odds.

6) How did you come up with your characters??

Darcy came from a dream I had a few years ago, the reason behind the entire series. What usually happens is a story idea surfaces, and then characters come and introduce themselves. It’s more of a feeling than an actual planning session. They tell me their names; show me their personalities, and what they look for. I then write it all down and go from there. With Mason and Devlin, they were extremely swoony, flirting with me from the get go!

7) How long did it take you to write the first draft?

It took me a few months to get Testing Fate completed. Because it was an emotional story to write, there were times where I struggled to capture what was needed, and real life issues slowed the process down as well. I’m a big believer in not rushing something just to rush it. I want each of my stories to be the best they can be—full of emotion, swoon, and my-gosh-I-can’t-put-this-down excitement. I have the best readers in the world. I want them to have a memorable experience each time they pick up my books to read.

8) What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

Hmmm, I know readers have compared the Mystic Wolves series to the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, The Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong, and some say Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.

9) Who or what inspired you to write this book?

I love my Mystic Wolves so continuing the series was an incredible incentive. I’m so grateful to readers and friends who have claimed Mason, Darcy, Daniel, Devlin, and even Vlad, as their own and asked for more. I was terrified when I published the first book in this series, worried no one would enjoy it, so it’s blown me away how excited everyone gets over each book. That’s what inspires me!

In general, though, my husband, best friend Lacey, and a trust confidante are the ones who first inspired and encouraged me to write. I can’t imagine what my life would be like if I hadn’t listened!

10) What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?

It’s full of SWOON! I love writing romance, and the relationship between Mason and Darcy is EPIC. There’s nothing they won’t do for each other and it’s in Testing Fate, that their love is put through the refiner’s fire. It’s the book you’ll find yourself cheering them on—laughing, crying, and sighing happily. I’m known for twists and turns that keep readers on the edge of their seats!
