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

Grave of Angels, by Michael Prescott.

Kate Malick’s first calling was as a Carmelite nun, a life devoted to prayer and faith. Now she runs a Hollywood security service dedicated to protecting its clients. But Kate’s most troublesome client, teenage celebutante Chelsea Brewer, is a walking, talking, slow-motion train wreck who’s testing that devotion. The poster child for the pitfalls of childhood fame and fortune, Chelsea careens from one party to the next, riding the ragged edge between celebrity…and fatality.

When a huge bet is placed on her impending demise, Chelsea disappears, forcing Kate to leap into action. Searching Hollywood’s darkest corners and seediest hiding places in a desperate attempt to find her client, Kate uncovers a tangled conspiracy of revenge and betrayal. But time is running out, and if Kate doesn’t find Chelsea, the bet will leave one person rich, one woman shattered, and one young girl dead. Flying at a breakneck pace and full of unrelenting tension, Grave of Angels journeys full-tilt into the dark side of fame.

The Birthday Scandal, by Leigh Michaels.

A Regency birthday party leads to love—and scandal!
When Lucien, Isabelle, and Emily are invited to their great-uncle’s seventieth birthday party, they hope the elderly duke’s promise to make their lives easier means they’ll be receiving cash. What they don’t expect to find is love…and scandal!

Lucien, incensed by his father’s announcement that he’s marrying a girl even younger than Lucien, resolves to convince the bride to back out—no matter what it takes. After a year of a marriage of convenience, Isabel is horrified to find her husband occupying the room next door—and making it clear he intends to move into her bed. And Emily, disillusioned by the whole notion of marriage after the death of her fiancé, decides it’s time to take a lover instead…

Three siblings, three romances—and three scandals—keep the ton buzzing in this Regency romp!

Here's today's Daily Non-Fiction Deal, available for $1.99!

In the Land of Invisible Women: A Female Doctor's Journey in the Saudi Kingdom, by Qanta Ahmed.

"In this stunningly written book, a Western trained Muslim doctor brings alive what it means for a woman to live in the Saudi Kingdom. I've rarely experienced so vividly the shunning and shaming, racism and anti-Semitism, but the surprise is how Dr. Ahmed also finds tenderness at the tattered edges of extremism, and a life-changing pilgrimage back to her Muslim faith." - Gail Sheehy

The decisions that change your life are often the most impulsive ones.

Unexpectedly denied a visa to remain in the United States, Qanta Ahmed, a young British Muslim doctor, becomes an outcast in motion. On a whim, she accepts an exciting position in Saudi Arabia. This is not just a new job; this is a chance at adventure in an exotic land she thinks she understands, a place she hopes she will belong.

What she discovers is vastly different. The Kingdom is a world apart, a land of unparralled contrast. She finds rejection and scorn in the places she believed would most embrace her, but also humor, honesty, loyalty and love.

And for Qanta, more than anything, it is a land of opportunity. A place where she discovers what it takes for one woman to recreate herself in the land of invisible women.
