17 Oct 2022.01:51 AM

A Personal Empowerment Life Coach and Executive Coach by profession, Smita Das Jain is a writer by passion and writes something every day. Her contemporary short stories have gained recognition in prominent national and international anthologies and platforms. 
A Price to Love is Smita’s first novel and second book after the bestselling and award-winning short story collection A Slice of Life. The contemporary tale of love, emotions and deceit set in corporate India delves into the struggles of having a successful career go together with a thriving personal life through the eyes of its protagonists.  .

Sonia is an ambitious woman working in the country’s most prominent media company.

On the surface, she has everything. Yet her life lacks balance. Her actions and behaviour impact the three men in her life. 

Should her husband Sameep choose their marriage over his happiness? Will Mehul’s love for his mentor prove to be a nemesis? Should age be just a number for the much older Rishabh as far as his subordinate Sonia is concerned? What secret from Sonia’s past is casting a shadow on the present lives of all the protagonists?

Smita wrote A Price to Love to satiate readers like herself. “As I grew in life, candyfloss romances that enthralled me in college held no appeal to me in a world where I had to balance family responsibilities with work deadlines,” Smita says. “I wanted to read a book with a working female protagonist in the backdrop of India Inc, my professional world. And I could find no such book in fiction by Indian writers. So, I wrote this emotional story showcasing the human side of the professional world.”

A Price to Love is an engrossing read that shows people are more driven by emotions than logic. The book released worldwide on 6th October 2022 and is already making waves in the reading and writing world. Award-winning author Sutapa Basu says about the book, “A romping romance with desire and addled emotions excellently brewed by Smita Das Jain.” A Price to Love is available on Amazon and in select leading bookstores in the country.
