The Cost of Happiness: A Contemporary Romance by Magdalen Braden

A Cinderella story set in a Philadelphia law firm filled with dark corners and scheming rivals ...

Meghan Mattson resigns her summer associate job when she learns that her bipolar mother is a con artist ... using Meghan's name. Meghan convinces the Feds to drop the charges against her, but it ends her career.

On Dan Howard's first day as a junior partner, he's amazed his paralegal is Meghan, Franklin Law's star student. He's thrilled to work with such a brilliant mind ... and such an attractive woman.

As Dan and Meghan tackle a tricky case, they struggle to resist their mutual attraction. Even if senior partner Wallace Leith approves, others in the firm want to see them fail. Can their office romance bring them a fairy-tale ending?

The Cost of Happiness is a stand-alone legal romance. It's also Book Two in Magdalen Braden's Blackjack Quartet, following Love in Reality.
