Today's Kindle Romance Daily Deal is Glory ($1.99), by NYTimes & USA Today bestselling author Heather Graham [Open Road].
In Civil War–era Florida, a woman suspected of witchcraft reawakens a tired doctor’s heart
Julian McKenzie, a surgeon and makeshift colonel, is at the end of his rope. He’s trapped deep in the South with his Rebel platoon, and their supplies and morale are running low. But while fleeing from an attack, he finds salvation in a most unusual form: a run-down plantation. Inside, widow Rhiannon Tremaine, a Union sympathizer, practices what the locals describe as witchcraft. In reality, Rhiannon is a gifted healer and medic. Still, she does have a bit of magic in her.
In the fifth book of her Florida Civil War series, bestselling author Heather Graham evokes a treacherous world of divided loyalties. Rhiannon has the gift of second sight, and while she used to welcome her visions, now her dreams only give her pain.
In Julian, though, she may have found someone to change them . . . if the war doesn’t conspire to rip the two apart.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Heather Graham, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

As the violence escalates, Madison, LAPD Detective Notchey, and a cadre of alluring and dangerous vampires search for the true killer—while Madison keeps a wary eye on the skittish and thirsty vampires. Will she survive to see the light of day?
Forgotten Sacrifice: The Arctic Convoys of World War II ($1.71 / £1.09 UK), by Michael G Walling, is the Kindle Deal of the day for those in the UK (the US edition is $7.69).
The story begins in October 1939, when Germany and the Soviet Union began diplomatic maneuvering. The action accelerates with Winston Churchill’s decision in 1941 to provide supplies to Soviet forces battling the German invasion and for five long years, thousands of men and women fought ferociously in the coldest corner of hell on earth. Some fought for survival, some struggled to help others survive, and some sought to crush their enemies. The Arctic Convoys were war without mercy. If man-made death didn’t get you, the Arctic’s weapons of ice and cold would. These natural weapons killed regardless of whose side you were on or how just your cause. No one escaped unscathed. Author Mike Walling captures the convoy’s bitter essence and reveals a timeless tale of determination, heroism, sacrifice, and the strength of the human spirit.
