The Characters of The Gypsy's Dance with Charlie Daye

Hey! My name’s Charlie Daye, paranormal romance author of The House, The Colonial, The Gypsy’s Dance and The Portrait. I have an obsession with the paranormal and happily ever afters and you will always get both with my stories.  Since my focus right now in on Gypsy’s Dance – I thought I’d give you some character bios.

Oralia Simone – A recently turned 18 year old gypsy who’s been promised in marriage to Tobias McGrath. She despises the idea of having to marry for anything other than love but feels it’s her obligation to make it work.

Niko Raydon – A Hunter. A race of people who police the magical realms keeping the innocents safe from the use of dark magic. Niko is one of five brothers and part of a matching set.

Tobias McGrath – A gypsy and next in line to lead his clan. He gets what he wants by using dark magic against any who oppose him or get in his way.

Patrick and Efanie Simone – Oralia’s parents. They only want what’s best for Oralia but are blind to the fact that Tobias is evil. Despite Oralia’s protests they still he’s the best match for her.
Sebastien Raydon – Niko’s father and head of the Raydon clan. He is as smart as he is deadly and always places his family first.

Aminay Raydon – Niko’s mother and matriarch of the Raydon clan. When needed she acts as the families doctor.

Lucian Raydon – Niko’s twin brother. Is married to the love of his life Ella and has twin sons with her – Alexander and Xavier. Both are in training to become Hunters.

Markus Raydon – The eldest of the Raydon boys. He’s quiet and just as lethal as his father. Nothing gets by him. Markus sees everything.

Keagan Raydon – Second to the youngest of the Raydon boys and the most sarcastic of the group. He’s a great fighter but at times tends to act before thinking.

Kai Raydon – The baby of the family and the one who gets away with more than anyone else. He has a flirtatious side that tends to get him in trouble but is always the first to volunteer for a fight.

Short Excerpt:

The time had finally come for the annual matching celebration. Oralia had been dreading this day for the last six months.
         It was six months ago that Oralia’s parents, Patrick and Efanie, had sat her down to inform her that they finally decided it was time she married. Having only turned eighteen two weeks prior Oralia was mortified. She had no desire to marry, much less with any of the men from her clan. It’s true there were a few that were pleasant to look at but for the most part her options were limited and it’s not like she got a choice in the matter. Her parents would make the arrangements prior to the celebration then hand her over like some gift wrapped prize to be won after the celebratory dance was completed. The wedding itself would take a place sometime within the month following the celebration.
         The entire process disgusted Oralia. She considered herself a free spirit and had no desire to settle down. She wanted to step out and see the world, to experience new things, meet new people and have the opportunity to choose for herself whom she wanted to love.
         Life at times could be so unfair.
