Abstract
We consider series of the form $p/q + \sum_{j=2}^\infty 1/x_j$, where $x_1=q$ and the integer sequence $x_n$ satisfies a certain nonautonomous recurrence of second order, which entails that $x_nx_{n+1}$ for n?1. It is shown that the terms of the sequence, and multiples of the ratios of successive terms, appear interlaced in the continued fraction expansion of the sum of the series, which is a transcendental number.
