The XOXO Files, Book 1
Drew Lawson is racing against the clock. He’s got a twenty-four-hour window to authenticate the mummy of Princess Merneith. If he’s not at his boyfriend’s garden party when that window closes, it’ll be the final nail in their relationship coffin.
The last thing he needs traipsing on the final shred of his patience is brash, handsome reality show host Fraser Fortune, who’s scheduled to film a documentary about the mummy’s Halloween curse.
The opportunity to film a bona-fide professor examining the mummy is exactly the aura of authenticity Fraser needs. Except the grumpy PhD is a pompous ass on leave from his ivory tower. Yet something about Drew has Fraser using a word he doesn’t normally have to draw upon: please.
With no time to waste—and a spark of attraction he can’t deny—Drew reluctantly agrees to let Fraser follow his every move as he unwraps the mummy’s secrets. Soon they’re both making moves behind the scenes that even the dead can’t ignore…

Product Warnings
Whoso shall ever open this tomb, er, book shall suffer the curse of the Pharaohs. Okay, maybe not. But set aside a chunk of time for marauding mummies, too many cosmopolitans, illicit sex in hotel rooms, and other non-academic shenanigans.

You can purchase through All Romance Ebooks, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Samhain itself...


  1. Get out--I have never been the first to comment on your blogs--ooh--the power=:) Okay, sorry--that was a little bit of a rush!

    Well, Josh, I've been a maniac posting everywhere about this little book. So one more time for the record...this was well done--light, airy, a good, tight little mystery and genuinely like-able characters. I am eager to see where you will take these two (Drew & Fraser)--they do indeed deserve another story! Well Done Josh--best of luck with this one--read people read--it is so worth it!

  2. Thank you, Sammy. You've been a trooper about spreading the word on the little book that could.

  3. Purchased and in the reading queue. I dropped so many books to read yours that I had to put a strict rule in place, "Read in order of purchase even if Josh puts out a new one". Unfortunately, it puts "Dead Run" and "Mummy Dearest" something like 25th and 26th on the list. Fortunately, I spend 3 hours a day on a commuter train so I have a lot of uninterrupted reading time. Looking forward to reading both books soon.

  4. Susan, that's a good rule. I buy books just to own them, have them for the moment I have time to read them, so there's no order or logic in my reading. I just grab whatever takes my fancy at the time. The scary thing is I already own more books than I can probably read in my lifetime -- unless reading became my fulltime job.

  5. Pre-ordered. Got it. Read it. Loved it. Your work is thoughtful and satisfying, I've enjoyed everything. Now I have to find it in hard copy in case the grid ever fails. That's saying alot since we just bought 3 new bookcases only to discover they won't begin to hold our library--and that is without the 20 boxes still in storage. Keep on writing!

  6. Thanks, Elise. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. What I've found is ebooks are just a new way to add to the pile of books I'm probably never going to have time to read. ;-P

  7. Josh,

    love your books, love your writing. Always glad to see a new one arrive on the Kindle store front. As a fellow romance writer, I love to study how you portray your protagonists thru the other character's eyes. Also love your sense of humor.

    One tiny ouch in this story. Sadly, no ivy covered porches in Wyoming, ie, the little museum. Ivy would never be able to live outdoors in high, dry Wyoming. Indoors, you might get it to grow if misted every single darn day.


  8. So glad you enjoyed the story, Cathy!
