Book Description

Raphael (Rafe) has prided himself in being in control of his life, but now he’s adrift. He’s a Hispanic man uncomfortable with his heritage, a playboy who knows he has to settle down, a man who pretends that family doesn’t matter when it does, and an FBI agent who thinks he’s at the top of his game only to be demoted by a serial killer.

Nalani Hana is far removed from the US Mainland and prefers it that way. Though a descendent of Hawaiian royalty, she prefers the simplicity of her secluded cottage on Maui. Born and raised into the safe business, she carries on her father’s legacy at N. Hana Safe & Lock Company.

Now someone is murdering the country’s legendary safe and vault technicians. Once a month, a safe man is found strangled and stuffed into a safe with three fingers severed. Raphael has to find the killer before he strikes again. The question is whether Nalani Hana is a suspect or the pawn of a demented killer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully unique plot and great characters June 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Right Combination by Nancy Loyen Schuemann was a surprising lesson in a technology that I had not been exposed to prior to this reading. The author has a passion for everything to do with locks and safes and builds it into the story.

Nalani, a Hawaiian descendent of royalty has a similar passion for everything to do with safes. She's an expert like few others. Raphael, aka Rafe, is an fbi man investigating the deaths of several of the world's safe experts. Someone is killing them once a month and severing their fingers.

When Rafe's Hispanic confidence (aka ego) run full force into Nalani's talents and expertise, things get exciting. Until he met the illustrious Nalani, he was certain she was his suspect. He traveled to the Hawaiian islands to attend a world-renown safe conference with the hopes of confronting her. Only she wasn't anything like he'd expected. Not sure whether he's investigating or protecting her, the suspense heats up.

How's Rafe going to stop the serial killer before someone else dies? The clock is ticking.

You'll have to read this to find out more but I can tell you, Nancy has done a great job of building out the characters and the plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! October 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
TRC says "thrill ride" from the outset. Not your typical romance, it nevertheless sweeps the reader into a world unknown to most. Ms. Loyan knows her business when it comes to locksmithing and combination safes, and she also knows how to write a wonderful tale. I'm a strong believer that anything can be interesting if the proponent is enthused and able to articulate that enthusiasm. Not that combination locks, etc, are uninteresting, they just never rose in my consciousness beyond securing my workout locker. Well, shame on me!
G-Man Rafe is on the hunt for a dangerous and elusive serial killer, and the beautiful Nalani may hold the key - or she may be the key! Their mutual attraction in not what either of them wants, and it plays havoc on the cool detachment Rafe needs to solve the mystery . . . and the murders.

TRC is a wonderful romance, a thriller, and an eye opener all at once. Very well done.

I purchased this book online and have given this review freely and without compensation of any kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Premise! July 26, 2013
By DOC
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unique premise in a romantic suspense! I knew nothing about safes and the experts who work with them until I read this novel. Ms. Loyan certainly does (she and her husband collect safes as a hobby!), and her novel is filled with many fascinating tidbits about the world of safe men and women. Her heroine and hero are unique, too, a beautiful and brainy Hawaiian woman with a secret past and a Cuban-American FBI agent who must find a serial killer targeting safe experts. The fast-paced action and in-depth characterizations had me pondering "who done it" more than once. The ending is wholly satisfying, capping off a race to the finish, with a lovely happily ever after at the finish line. I highly recommend THE RIGHT COMBINATION!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating new angle to mystery/romance June 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This mystery/romance opens with an unusual and intriguing setting that the author clearly has researched carefully-the world of safes and the people who handle them. And in this book, those people are getting killed. The hero, FBI agent Rafe, provides just the right combination of tough determination and thoughtful sensitivity to be super sexy. Good writing here and the descriptions of Hawaii paints a detailed picture for those who have never visited the islands. A good read for those who like romance mixed in with murder.
