Kerri On is the debut novel in a trilogy by author Kerri Krysko. The courageous Ms. Krysko bears her heart and soul in this gut wrenching memoir. It is a tale of a lonely little girl who was abused by all who should have loved and nurtured her; bullying in its purest form.
Bullying in its most excruciatingly painful form...
The abuse set the stage for a lifetime of abuse. The pattern of history repeating itself while Ms. Krysko searched for that elusive feeling of belonging...of fitting in...of being loved...for prince charming to come and sweep her off her feet and take her away from all of her pain.
Like all beautiful girls who suffer from low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence, she was drawn to the bad boys. They always seem to start out as the answer to her dreams but ended up being nightmares. Kerri was always able to pull herself together and gather up the strength to leave these monsters. That was until she met "The Beast". He was charismatic and manipulative and knew exactly which buttons to push.
The Beast was the king of all the bad boys; he was a high ranking, “full patch” member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Gang. He dazzled her with his power, money & sexual prowess. People were afraid of him and gave him VIP treatment and soon she found that she was also receiving VIP treatment. But there was a very high price to pay...
The Beast was so diabolical that through his constant verbal and physical abuse he was able to beat her down psychologically and physically until she felt powerless.
For the sake of her children Kerri knew she had to find the strength to break free. She decided to start her own journey, to revisit and explore her past to figure out how she got where she is today, and to escape her nightmare.
I'm really looking forward to the second book in the trilogy...at the edge of my seat!

MURDER FOR GLACIER BLUE is the third in this series and I had been waiting patiently for its arrival. I love anything Diane Rapp writes, but this series has a special place in my heart. I fell in love with the characters and could not wait to see what was in store…
Kayla and her fiancé, Steven Young, are finally going to wed! They can’t resist the invitation to an Alaskan cruise with their cruise line friends, so they mix a bit of business and pleasure. With Kayla’s knack for sniffing out and solving mysteries, and Steve’s background in the undercover world of intelligence, they are the perfect lead to a team formed to provide security for a multimillion dollar art collection.
The gang must ensure the safety of a collection of authorized copies of original art that are exhibited alongside the original paintings and then they will be auctioned. The stakes are high and the crooks are lurking around every corner and don’t even get me started on Steve’s ex-wife and her hidden agenda!
True to her style, Diane Rapp takes us on this cruise with breathtaking scenes that are described in such detail; you can feel the cool sea breeze on your face. You’ll enjoy the whale watching and the wildlife, but you will never forget your first view of the glacier.
This cruise is full of surprises and is definitely going to keep you on the edge of your seat!
