With You I Dance
by

Meera Sagar had everything—the perfect job as a principal ballerina (for a prestigious New York ballet company) and a man who loved her as much as she loved him. But tragedy struck on the night before her biggest performance, forcing her to do the one thing she never wanted to do—come back home. To Mumbai.

Now, a year later, Meera is still trying to pick up the pieces, while fending off marriage proposals from her well-meaning but traditional Gujarati family, and figure life out all over again. By starting a ballet school in Mumbai. But she has two problems. One, she doesn’t know anything about running a business. And two, she can’t dance. Not anymore.

Enter . . .
Abeer Goswami. Hotshot junior partner at a South Bombay law firm and a man nursing a broken heart. When he meets Meera again, the woman who left him, he tries his hardest to be her friend, to help her . . . and not let the past get in the way.

And then . . .
There is the sexy Zoya Sehgal. Meera’s only friend in the city and the woman Abeer is currently seeing. They say triangles have pointy edges, for a reason. Will Meera find a new dream in her ballet school? Can Abeer and Meera find their way back to each other again? And, most important, has Meera danced for the last time?

With you I dance is a warm, funny, at times heart-rending, love story of second chances, true love, and finding yourself when your dearest dream has vanished.

Today I have another prolific author who has authored two books and this is her third. I got an opportunity to ask her a question, and her response will bowl you over!

So let's welcome the Aarti V !

Your first book was a thriller and now you pen a romance genre. What inspired you this change?

Aarti V
Both of the books that came before WYID, White Knight and Kingdom Come were romantic thrillers. With a healthy dose of romance and an equal amount of guns, bombs and people kicking ass. There is no change as such that happened, TBH. 
I just figured love is the most dangerous weapon of them all. So let’s explore it sans the guns and epic action. There is no change per se that happened, except that I shifted gears and switched to a more contemporary, happen-able story. I mean, how weird would it be if Abeer turned out to be a lawyer involved in an environmental lawsuit and the evil corporation guys take Meera hostage and he comes charging (complete with a ripped bod) and saves the day while she is using her ballet training to take the goons out? 
It’s not about genre so much as the story that interests me at the time of telling. If it has action, great. If it doesn’t and it’s just a bunch of people figuring life out that’s great too. If it has flying dragons AWESOME!
