Summary

From Scout Media comes A Flash of Words—the fifth volume in an ongoing short story anthology series featuring authors from all over the world, but the first in which the stories are exclusively flash-fiction pieces.
 
In this installation, no limits were set on genre, allowing the authors to lead the reader to destinations unknown; from ghosts on a flight line, to not-so-cuddly poodles, to finding love in the most unexpected of places. Within these moments of retribution and redemption—along with a slightly confused bear—these flash-fiction length stories will warm your heart, send shivers down your spine, and tickle your funny bone. 
 
Whether to be enlightened, entertained, or momentarily immersed in another world, these selections convey the true spirit of flash fiction.

And even the temptation of her father’s wealth cannot sway the men in her direction.Astride his warhorse, William is the pinnacle of manhood and a burr in Kathryn’s side. His impish “Kate” calls raise her hackles, yet she can’t keep from being lulled by his voice.Though he claims he is the only man for her, she is certain he desires only her rich dowry. When he proposes marriage, she accepts as a way out of her miserable home, but expects nothing. Freed from her cruel family and judgmental town, Kathryn must decide if she will continue her battle of wills with the sometimes charming, often maddening Sir William. Does she remain the shrewish Kathryn—or find a way to be Will’s Kate? This delightful take on the classic romantic comedy—from the shrew’s point of view—is “rich in Shakespearean references and vivid historical details” (Katherine Longshore).
