From the Author:

Excerpt from the book Undone by the Duke
Copyright © 2012 by Michelle Willingham
Montlake Romance
Ballaloch, Scotland
December 1810

Jonathan Nottoway, the fourth Duke of Worthingstone, was staring down the barrel of a gun. He supposed he ought to be feeling fear or even a sense of impending doom. Instead, Fate had a way of mocking him. His attacker wasn't a seasoned killer or a disgruntled tenant. No, he had the damnably bad luck to be threatened by a boy who wasn't even old enough to shave.
"Put the weapon down," he ordered. "You don't want to shoot me."
"Yes, I do." Anguish lined the boy's face, along with a single-minded purpose. "It's your fault. All of it."
The boy's hands started shaking, and Jonathan tried to take a step back. The gun would go off, if his finger tightened even a fraction.
"And what, precisely, am I accused of?" He spoke softly, as if soothing a wounded animal. Glancing around, he saw none of his servants nearby. Not his groom or even a blessed footman. He supposed it was his own fault for snarling at them this morning to leave him the hell alone. They'd done just that.
The outside temperature was growing colder, and a few fat snowflakes fluttered from the sky. Idiot that he was, Jonathan had tethered his horse back near the frozen stream, so he didn't even have the option of riding away.
"You know what you've done," the boy spat. "Burned our homes and murdered the others."
Though Jonathan was aware of the Highland evictions, with landowners forcing the Scots out of their homes, he'd had nothing to do with that. His reasons for being in Scotland were purely financial. After purchasing this land a year ago, he'd come to inspect the crumbling house that went with it. Now it was perfectly clear why solicitors were meant to handle such details.
"I'm not the one who set your home on fire," Jonathan said. "And I've killed no one."
"Your men did," the boy insisted. He raised the gun to Jonathan's chest. "When you're dead, the burnings will stop."
"I'm not certain who you think I am," he said to the boy, "but I can assure you, you have the wrong man."
"You're the Earl of Strathland," the boy said, his eyes brimming up with tears. "And because of you, my mother was burned."
"I am not the Earl," Jonathan began. "You've made a mistake. I only came to--"
His words broke off when the gun fired.
