Kindle Daily Deals: Memoirs, romance, fantasy and a classic kid's book! $2.99 and less, today only!

Today's Daily Deals include a memoir, a romance, a fantasy and a classic kid's book. I had to pick up a copy of the Boxcar Children mystery.

Here's today's Kindle Daily Deal, available for $2.99 today!

A Time of Gifts: On Foot to Constantinople: From the Hook of Holland to the Middle Danube (New York Review Books Classics), by Patrick Leigh Fermor.

At the age of eighteen, Patrick Leigh Fermor set off from the heart of London on an epic journey—to walk to Constantinople. A Time of Gifts is the rich account of his adventures as far as Hungary, after which Between the Woods and the Water continues the story to the Iron Gates that divide the Carpathian and Balkan mountains. Acclaimed for its sweep and intelligence, Leigh Fermor’s book explores a remarkable moment in time. Hitler has just come to power but war is still ahead, as he walks through a Europe soon to be forever changed—through the Lowlands to Mitteleuropa, to Teutonic and Slav heartlands, through the baroque remains of the Holy Roman Empire; up the Rhine, and down to the Danube.

At once a memoir of coming-of-age, an account of a journey, and a dazzling exposition of the English language, A Time of Gifts is also a portrait of a continent already showing ominous signs of the holocaust to come.

Here's today's Daily Romance Deal, available for $1.99 today!

Meant to Be (An Anchor Island Novel), by Terri Osburn.

Sometimes the next best thing is what you’ve been looking for all along…

Beth Chandler has spent her whole life pleasing others. She went to law school to make her grandparents happy. She agreed to marry her workaholic boyfriend, Lucas, to make him happy. And, despite her fear of boats, she took a ferry to see Lucas’s parents just to make them happy.

While suffering through a panic attack on the ferry, Beth meets a tall, sexy stranger who talks her down from her fear—and makes her heart flutter in the process. Soon, she has a new reason to panic: her gorgeous, blue-eyed rescuer is Lucas’s brother, Joe. But could she ever leave her fiancĂ© for his own brother…even if Lucas is more focused on making partner than on making their relationship work…and even if Joe turns out to be everything she never knew she wanted?

Filled with excitement and delight, Meant to Be is the story of a young woman torn between urban pressures and small-town pleasures.

Here's today's Daily Science Fiction/Fantasy Deal, available for $1.99 today!

Oberon's Dreams (The Godlanders War), by KB's own Aaron Pogue.

Corin has never imagined something beyond his wildest dreams…mostly because he’s confident enough in himself to see his wildest dreams come true. And for the last three years, his goal has been the riches of the lost city of Jezeeli.

And after a long, arduous search, his journey has finally found its destination.

The problem is, the dashing, quick-witted leader promised his men that they would be rewarded for those three lean years with unimaginable treasure, but the ancient ruins hold no gold or jewels—only stacks of strange books. Left to die in a fire set by his mutinous crew, Corin is mysteriously rescued and transported back in time to a city ruled by King Oberon.

Stuck, only Oberon has the power to send Corin home. But the tyrant Ephitel—a brutal god whose name strikes fear even in Corin’s time—has designs on Oberon’s throne. Can Corin defeat the mighty Ephitel and change the course of history'

With a supporting cast of mystical druids, a gentleman thief, and a banished courtier from the House of Violets, Oberon’s Dreams is an action-packed, richly imagined adventure fantasy from the author of The Dragonprince trilogy.
