    • Abstract:
      Summary: Dr. Trisha Raje is San Francisco's most acclaimed neurosurgeon. But that's not enough for the Rajes, her influential immigrant family who achieved power by making its own non-negotiable rules: never trust an outsider, never do anything to jeopardize your brother's political aspirations, and never, ever, defy your family. Trisha has been guilty of breaking all the rules, but finally has a chance to redeem herself. So long as she doesn't repeat her old mistakes. Up-and-coming chef DJ Caine has known people like Trisha before, people who judge him by his rough beginnings and place pedigree above character. He needs the lucrative job the Rajes offer, but he values his pride too much to indulge Trisha's arrogance. Then he discovers that she's the only surgeon who can save his sister's life. But before a future can be savored there's a past to be reckoned with....

Booklist Reviews 2019 April #2

Dr. Trisha Raje is an accomplished surgeon, and she is about to perform a groundbreaking, tumor-removing surgery. The operation will, however, leave her patient, an artist, blind. Trisha's brother is running for governor, thus fulfilling her family's ambitious political dreams, and his events are being catered by DJ Caine, a mixed-race British chef with a model's good looks. DJ also happens to be the sister of Trisha's patient. Like a gender-swapped Pride and Prejudice, sparks fly during Trisha and DJ's first meeting when DJ overhears Trisha saying she'd never stoop to dating "the hired help." But Trisha and DJ must reverse their initial impressions of each other and work together if they want to see DJ's sister survive her surgery and Trisha's brother win the gubernational race, especially with con-woman Julia Wickham on the prowl. Dev's fifth novel faces such issues as cultural assimilation, familial forgiveness, and medical ethics head-on. Her descriptions of DJ's culinary delights, whether from DJ's passionate perspective or from Trisha's, are mouthwatering. Ideal for romantics and foodies alike. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2019 April

DJ Caine, a multiracial British Cordon Bleu-trained chef, is dismayed to learn that the arrogant woman who invaded "his" kitchen, almost tipped over his caramel, and then referred to him as "the hired help" is Trisha Raje, the brilliant doctor he's counting on to save his sister Emma's life. No slouch in the talent department himself, DJ knows he has no choice but to tamp down his resentment and find a way to get along with Trisha, not only for Emma's sake but also for his career as a personal chef. Then the sparks that fly between them turn to attraction, confusing them both and leading to a union that is profound and totally fresh. A career-focused heroine who's unrivaled in the operating room but lost when it comes to relationships and a conflicted hero whose food is pure magic sort their way through prejudices, first impressions, miscommunications, and family expectations in a story alight with unforgettable characters. VERDICT With humor, insight, and culinary descriptions so rich the tantalizing aromas of curry and cilantro practically waft from the pages, Dev's latest draws readers into a tangled world of class, cultural, and political issues in a delicious riff on Pride and Prejudice. Dev (A Distant Heart) lives in the Chicago area. [See Prepub Alert, 11/26/18.]

PW Reviews 2019 March #3

Dev (A Bollywood Affair) debuts a sweeping series starring the Raje family, immigrants descended from Indian royalty who are making a dazzling mark on American society, with this romance based very loosely on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Dr. Trisha Raje is a brilliant neurosurgeon with little time for love or family. Multiracial British chef DJ Caine has cared for his younger sister all their lives and has assumed the burden of her exorbitant medical bills from fighting a progressive brain tumor. When DJ is hired by Trisha's socialite mother to cater an important event, the two butt heads; DJ finds Trisha attractive but thinks she has terrible manners. Upon realizing DJ's beloved sister is also Trisha's beloved patient—who's currently refusing treatment—the dueling duo is forced to collude to find a life-saving solution. Over time, their antipathy gradually shifts to love, but the return of Raje family foe Julia Wickham risks disrupting their growing romance. Dev adroitly addresses matters of racism, classism, rape culture, and immigrant experiences in this entertaining contemporary story. Austen fans will find that little of the original remains; where Austen's focus was on women, Dev harps on the importance of being validated by men. Taken on its own, though, this is a complex and riveting work. Agent: Claudia Cross, Folio Literary Mgmt. (May)
