Summary: After a messy break up Caroline Forbes decides to take up a job in small town Texas not expecting to cross paths with arrogant cattle ranch owner Niklaus Mikaelson. Although on closer reflection she realizes there’s much more to him than meets the eye.

In this story Caroline is a political advisor to Matt Donovan and needs to help him be elected to the US House of Representatives, in order to do so she moves to Jefferson, Texas and bumps into the arrogant yet gorgeous cattle ranch owner Klaus Mikaelson.  Caroline and Klaus start off on a rocky start (perfect Klaroline), however as the story progresses they get to know each other better and each sees a different side to one another. With this they of course become attracted and begin falling for one another. Caroline knows she will have to leave eventually, yet she finds her feelings for Klaus getting stronger and stronger.

This story is currently in-progress, and as the story progresses, you hear about and meet some of Klaus’s siblings, some more cocky than the others. You also get snake bites, a really scary, annoyed and angry Katherine Pierce. This story is quite witty, with barbs thrown back and forth between Klaus and Caroline, Commentary from Matt Donovan and Lexi. There’s of course some angst and what’s a Klaroline story without some angst.

What I really enjoy about this story is the different setting and seeing Ms New York trying to fit in and adjust to Texas with her heels and fancy clothing, and of course added commentary from Klaus. I also really enjoy picturing Klaus as this hot country boy *swoon*. As the story progresses you see Klaus working with his cattle and I found this really sweet and initially it seemed out of character for me, but taking into account Klaus from TVD, he really cared for and loved his horse, and it was easy to picture him caring for his cattle.

I enjoy the way the story is written and the pace in which things are moving, as it really shows you the development of Klaroline from animosity to attraction to flirtation and eventually love. The story also focuses on the campaign, and the family dynamic of Matt, Lexi and their daughter. This story should definitely be checked out.
