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.

Aarti V Raman is an established novelist in the romantic thriller genre (White Knight, Kingdom Come) with her third book, a contemporary romance titled “With You I Dance” out soon with Fingerprint Publishing.

29 years old, she graduated from Mumbai University in 2007 with a degree in Mass Media focused on Journalism, which provided her the perfect background for conducting sound research on any project. She then went on to study Creative and Professional Writing at Deakin University in Melbourne for post-graduation in 2008. It was there that she learned to hone her craft and lifelong ambition of writing romances that had strong characters and stronger stories that remained etched in the reader’s minds.


While waiting for her big break, Aarti pursued commercial writing and gained a vast amount of knowledge (from fishing tackle to soft toys) that she claims have helped her with molding better stories. Her first novel “White Knight” was published by Leadstart in 2012 and gave her the impetus to continue writing. In 2013, her work was excerpted in the Tamil Edition of Mills and Boon novels. And in 2014, her short story “Post-Coital Cigarette” was chosen to be part of the Rupa Romance Anthology “An Atlas of Love” curated by bestselling author Anuja Chauhan.


Her latest novel “Kingdom Come” (Harlequin MIRA) has enjoyed a brief stay at the bestseller lists in Amazon India. Her work is represented by Red Ink Literary Agency, Delhi. And very recently, she was a speaker and panellist at the Goa Arts and Literary Fest 2014, Vth Edition.


She is currently expanding her skill set to include copy editing, content marketing, and creative writing workshop that help her explore the wonderful world of words in various forms.

Interview with Aarti

Today on my dear blog ie Romance Writer With Walnut Cup Cakes  a sweet Aarti V Raman has agreed to answer my question on her latest release  here which I  had mailed it  to her ,few days ago .

12400985_970101783081400_8904772276492821404_n

Over to  you Aarti !

  1. What made you to choose a dance subject for your latest book?

Dance is like all other art forms, chaotic, graceful and one finds meaning inside it, much like one can in writing or movies or books. I chose dance as one of the core themes of the book to pay homage to all the entertainers in the industry who wait endlessly for their break, never losing faith, never giving up. Sort of a parallel track when it comes to finding everlasting love, don’t you think?

  1. Abeer a laid back desi hot shot lawyer is totally your creation or is there any one in real life who has inspired you to pen him down like this?

Haha. A good writer never reveals her muse. Abeer is a combination of a lot of good, decent, reasonable men who do not fly off the handle whenever the going gets rough and a product of my imagination while watchingSuits, a US Network TV series. In fact, I have even acknowledged the leads of the series in the book.

  1. Any reason why did you choose a ‘ballet’ dance form over other dances forms like bharatnatyam and odissi

I have studied Bharatnatyam and it is intricate and painful. But I suppose the charm of watching a man prance around in a tutu performing lifts is something else, isn’t it? The other reason is the haunting music of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake that made me absolutely fall in love with the performances of the artistes.

  1. Describe Aarti in 5 words.

Five words are not enough J

  1. Your Favorite Author.

At the moment, it is Haruki Murakami and Leigh Bardugo.

  1. Describe your best bookish moments?

Don’t know what this means. Don’t think I am bookish.

I hope you all enjoy reading her cool answers here .

Thanks for keeping your keen ears  on our blog page .
