Another dead end. She'd been so sure Mercy Jones would be able to tell her who had killed her father, but Mercy only blathered on about Sasha's aura, that it was pure and beautiful with the light of divinity -- the most perfect she'd ever seen. Mercy said she was destined for an extraordinary life. (pp 1 and 2)

Sasha is desperate to find out who murdered her father. When getting the answer means pledging her soul to Eryx, she unlocks a secret that puts her in grave danger—Sasha is Anabo, a daughter of Eve, and Eryx’s biggest threat.

A son of Hell, immortal, and bound to Earth forever, Jax looks for redemption in the Mephisto Covenant—God’s promise he will find peace in the love of an Anabo. After a thousand years, he’s finally found the girl he’s been searching for: Sasha.

With the threat of Eryx looming, Jax has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?

*Summary taken from Goodreads.

Are you kidding me? I just about peed my pants, when I saw that the postal person had brought a package that said, "From Egmont..." and I was literally DYING ON THE INSIDE, seriously hoping that it was The Mephisto Covenant because this book was one of my top three most anticipated this year along with Eve and Wither. So, without a doubt, I knew that it had to be this week's Teaser Tuesday, because it was the perfect fit and I cannot wait to really start reading this. I'm in love with the mythology and it's going to be interesting to see how she marries the religious overtones with the mortal romance. Plus, the cover is to-die-for gorgeous. No, really...it is, just look at it.

A daughter of Eve in love with a son of Hell? Oh yes, I'm there every.single.time.
