6 Sentence Sunday: Fall for Me

I don't often get to Twitter on Sundays, which is why 6 Sentence Sunday has only now caught my attention. Seems like a lot of fun, and I'm always willing to put my words out for feedback. I love the idea of writers sharing bits and bobs from their work -- published and unpublished. So many thanks to Sara Brookes for putting this together each week. This is pulled from the first chapter of Fall for Me, my romantic paranormal novel. (And, yes, that's another title change. Don't ask.)

“Matilde.” Bartholomew said my name with a reverence reserved for a god. He reached across me to tuck a stray lock of blonde hair behind my right ear. “I cannot imagine eternity without you.”

My skin burned beneath his touch. I rested my cheek against his open palm and knew I could not deny him.
