I have two kindles on my account. One for me and one for my wife.

Is there a way to move my wife's kindle device to her account and off of mine?

Yes, just deregister her kindle from your account and register it to hers. You can do this from the manage your kindle here at Amazon.

From the home page use the menu and go to "settings". There you can click on "deregister kindle.". Then your wife can immediately press "register kindle" and register it under her account.

Sure. She can deregister it from your account, and register it to her own. Do be aware that content belongs to the account that was used to purchase it, and can't be transferred across accounts.

If I transfer a kindle to a different account, will the books that are currently on the kindle remain on it or will they be deleted?

If it is an e-ink kindle, the books will stay on the device until deleted from the device. If it is a Fire, you will lose the books once the device is deregistered from the account.
