Please welcome Meg Bawden and
States Of Love
Hello, hello! My name is Meg Bawden and I’m on My Fiction Nook to celebrate the release of my new book, Rushing Love! Woot!
Rushing Love is a M/M romance story set in South Dakota, USA. I wrote it for the States of Love line from Dreamspinner Press and I can’t wait for its release. I had so much fun writing it and I can’t wait to share it with you.
After a devastating break-up with the man he thought he’d spend his life with, Flynn Webb takes a holiday to a South Dakota dude ranch. It’s something completely different from anything he’s done before, and it helps that it’s as far away from his ex as possible. Trapped in his own depressive thoughts, Flynn is surprised to meet Grayson Harland. Not only is Grayson a sexy cowboy—one fifteen years younger—but he’s the most charming man Flynn has ever met.
Flynn doesn’t have much experience with being seduced, and he has even less with guys like Grayson taking an interest in him—and Grayson is definitely interested. What begins as a fling while visiting iconic South Dakota sights soon develops the potential for much more. But Flynn is afraid that falling in love again so soon—and with a man so much younger—will lead only to another catastrophic heartbreak. Luckily for them both, Grayson isn’t giving up without a fight.

Love at First Sight: Is it real?
My opinion? Yes. I’ve seen it happen before. I’ve had a friend see a gentleman for the first time and I saw the moment when she fell in love with him. However, love is such an opinionated topic. Some people will tell you that you must truly get to know someone before you can be in love with them. I agree to a certain extent. You’re not going to know what someone is like until you get to know them better, but saying that, why can’t you look at someone and just know you’re going to spend the rest of your life with them? Why can’t a piece of you fall in love with them because you just know. That’s what happened to my friend.
In the m/m genre, it’s commonly known as instalove and I hate that word. The word has negative connotations to it. Whenever I hear it, I cringe. What happened to just calling it what it is? Love at first sight. Because that’s the romantic word for it. Don’t get me wrong, I know it doesn’t happen often. Actually, it happens rarely anymore. These days, it’s about sex and appearances and sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong era. Romance and commitment is uncommon in the world of social media and technology. But nonetheless, I’m a romantic at heart and I believe love at first still exists. And in Rushing Love, I wanted to show that. How someone can know a person, date a person for nineteen years, and not truly love them. And in one moment of meeting someone new, someone amazing, they find themselves enraptured and falling quickly.
So let me be honest, if you aren’t a believer of love of first sight, or if you hate it, then Rushing Love isn’t for you. Because love at first sight is what this story revolves around. That and the idea that you can fall in love with anyone, even someone fifteen years younger than you. Love knows no gender, no age and it does not discriminate.
