Title: Prodigal

Author: Jody Wallace

Series Name: Maelstrom Chronicles #3

He nearly destroyed the world, but with her help, he can save it.



Adam Alsing has no idea who he is or why he’s huddled naked in the snow next to a mysterious silver pod. When a gorgeous, no-nonsense sheriff by the name of Claire Lawson rescues him, she explains the planet’s under attack—and he’s been missing for over two years. The problem is, what he doesn’t remember can kill them.

He nearly destroyed the world, but with her help, he can save it.

Keeping the peace in her post-apocalyptic town is all the trouble Sheriff Claire Lawson can handle. Until the MIA Chosen One—the guy who could have prevented the apocalypse—interrupts her supply run. The Shipborn aliens want to study him, and what’s left of the Terran government wants to lock him up. But his charming demeanor and his desire to help, along with his sexy smile, has Claire fighting her better judgment to keep Adam around. For now.

Adam Alsing—at least that’s what they tell him his name is—just knows he wants to stay with Claire. She’s the one thing that makes him feel grounded. Grounded and kind of turned on, but these are serious times. The monsters have stepped up their attacks and nobody knows why. He’ll help her protect her town, her Shipborn friends, and every human on Earth who hates him for being the man he can’t remember being. He’s afraid he’s still that man, the one who failed the planet. Or is he something entirely new and even more dangerous?

The Maelstrom Chronicles series is best enjoyed in order.

Teaser Excerpts:

She wasn’t a woman who cared about appearances, unless it appeared someone was in her way, but Adam’s physical perfection made her self-conscious. The man had dated actresses and supermodels. Then again, whispered a naughty little voice in her head, he didn’t remember any of them, did he? And he’d tried to kiss her. Sort of.

He was an odd man. A miraculous, sexy, charming, amiable, way too pale, offhandedly heroic, odd, odd man.


She and Adam hadn’t so much as kissed. That element, after the first few days, seemed to have disappeared from their relationship. She found herself talking to him like she did her sister and Dixie, her closest friends. She wanted his thoughts and opinions. Since he wasn’t fraught with a loaded history like everyone else, his viewpoint had such clarity that it increased her clarity, too.

She didn’t want to need help to increase her clarity, her composure, least of all from some amnesiac Hollywood type already fending off women who wanted to screw him.



Jody Wallace grew up in the South in a very rural area. She went to school a long time and ended up with a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing. Her resume includes college English instructor, technical documents editor, market analyst, web designer, and all around pain in the butt. She resides in Tennessee with one husband, two children, one Grandma, six cats, and a lot of junk.
