Former Bachelor Matt Grant has not given up on love since his split with fiancee Shayne Lamas. The British hunk has fallen again -- this time for his British-born public relations rep.

Grant, the star of The Bachelor: London Calling, says his relationship with Sarah Robarts, who's a mother of two, has evolved into a serious emotional bond.

"It's turned into the best relationship I have ever been in," Grant tells PEOPLE. "I'm completely in love. She's extremely beautiful inside and out. She's one in a million."

When the two first met following Grant's appearance (and engagement to Lamas) on The Bachelor, it was all business. But even then Grant says, "I couldn't help but to think, 'Man she's hot.'" Grant's rocky relationship with Lamas officially ended in July. Months later, Grant and Robarts went out for drinks that turned into a date. "We connected on every level," he says. "If she had been on The Bachelor, there would not have been a competition. It would've been the shortest season ever."

And the couple's 11-year age difference -- she is 39, he is 28 -- is not a deterrent for Grant. "Age is not an issue," he says. "Sarah is very much on my level. The only thing is I've had to bring my game up since The Bachelor. She's way too intelligent for some of the talk I used on the show."

Yet, the two are not rushing the relationship. "I'm trying to play this cool, but I feel blessed," says Grant. "We have a wonderful relationship and I hope we continue forever."

He adds: "It's just so ironic that I came all the way over from England to find love on The Bachelor in America. And in the end, I fall in love with a Brit." -- Reagan Alexander
