Tess Thompson Romantic Suspense Novels

We started writing together in 2002. The editor of a small press liked our first book and published it. We were off to a great start, or so we thought. Not too long after our book was available, the publisher went out of business. We had our copyright, so we decided to self-publish with Amazon.com. Now, we are writing several books a year, and we haven't looked back. We combined our two last names and write romantic suspense together as Charlene TESS and Judi THOMPSON.

All of our titles are available in the Kindle Store at Amazon.com.

The Secondhand Hearts series has two titles, and the characters are common to both, although they can each be read as a standalone.

Accidental Angel is a romance novel with intrigue. and mystery. The setting is Colorado. When a woman rescues a doctor from his burning car, she becomes his accidental angel. 

On a cold, rainy night, when James Ross's car accidentally collides with a dog, he meets Doctor Angela Michaels at the emergency veterinary clinic. James is a major league baseball player and a single father who is raising his son alone. When the boy becomes seriously ill, Angela steps up to help the family again as he discovers the depths of Angela's heart.


Second Daughter is set in Washington, D.C. A former secret service agent and the Vice President's daughter are the main characters. This novel and all the ones in the series that follow are romantic suspense novels.
