Teaser Tuesday: The Endless Forest by Sara Donati

My teaser this week comes from The Endless Forest by Sara Donati, the sixth and final book of the Into the Wilderness series set in the late 18th and early 19th century in colonial America. I have previously posted about the books in this series here. I am reading this with somewhat conflicting emotions. I was looking forward to reading the book to find out what happens to some characters that I have enjoyed reading about over the last few years, but I am also sad that I am going to have say goodbye at the end of the book.

The teaser comes from page 254, although I must confess that I have actually cheated and given more than the normal two sentences!

Inside he pressed her against the closed door and kissed her there in the dim empty room. With one hand holding her face he kissed her until something came awake in her, a need she hadn't known about. But he had underestimated her, or overestimated his powers of persuasion, because she pushed him away with a hand against his good shoulder.

"Wait," she said breathlessly. "Wait. I have to say something. I have to ask you a question."

Teaser Tuesday is host by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!

  2. Oooh, what's the question?? Great teaser... I know what you mean about not wanting to get to an end of a series - I will soon start the last in the Millenium trilogy, and I really do want to know what happens, but I don't want it to be the last I read about the characters!!! :)

  7. This sounds interesting. But I'm a little daunted by the fact that I would have to read five books before I got to this one. Glad you are enjoying the book.

  10. I like that part about him under, or maybe over estimating her. Sometimes it's hard to tell one from the other.

  11. Now I'm curious about what question she wants to ask!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  18. A beautiful teaser, yet does she need to tell him?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I haven't heard of this series before. But my interest has been captured...what does she want to ask and why does he only have one good shoulder?

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  25. I'm really interested in reading this series. I wanted them for my eReader but they only offer the last 4 so I need to get the first 2 to read first.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I read the first one in this series several years ago and liked it a lot. I've got the second on my shelf, but it's such a chunkster I keep delaying picking it up. I'm glad to hear you've enjoyed the rest of the series. Might give me some incentive to get to Dawn on a Distant Shore off the shelf soon

  27. Now that's a tease!

    Thank you for dropping by mine!

  28. OOOh rocky road romances are one of my favorites. And now I wanna know what kind of question interrupts that kind of passion. Great teaser!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know what you mean about feeling sad when you've finished a much loved series. I feel that way when a favorite author retires--or worse, dies. Regret not being able to look forward to more of their writing. Your selection is from a time in American history that I haven't explored yet. So many good books, so little time!

    Thanks for checking out my TT at Summit Musings

  30. Ahhhh! Men, always overestimating their powers of persuasion. I love that phrase.

    Great teaser.

    btw, Lot of blogs you're on. How do you do this? It's mindboggling to me. I can barely maintain mine - of course I'm worn out, and ambitionless. heehee :)

  31. Oh, this is a wonderful teaser! I am going to have to read at least the first book in this series. Off to look it up....

  33. I have a few questions about the Endless Forest. Jamima threatens to expose Ethan's secret at the end but I don't remember hearing what it was. What was it? And do we ever find out why he has intimacy issues?
