Title: These Are for Tears (Book Three in the Will-o’-the-Wisp Stories)
Author: Sherry Perkins
Genre: Paranormal Romance Thriller
Too much family drama at home. That's what Morgan Patterson was thinking when she left the States to finish her final year of college studying abroad in Northern Ireland. She quickly finds herself immersed in a hidden world of magic and danger with the man of her dreams at the center of it. Only he's not a man. Tiernan Doherty is an honest-to-goodness faerie lord with family drama of his own. There's a blood feud to be settled, not to mention a messy chain of duty that binds him to the queen of the dark fae, a woman he truly despises. None of that matters to Morgan, though. She realizes Tiernan's not just the man of her dreams, he's the man she's meant to protect. But what she does to protect him surprises everyone, threatening the long-standing peace between humans and faeries, and causing more than enough tears for them all. "These Are for Tears," is the third book in the Will-o'-the-Wisp Stories, a serialized, multiple-point-of-view, epic urban fantasy that proves nothing is what it seems, promises are meant to be kept and words are binding things.
“Get her,” the Vicar said, urgency in his tone. “Bring Morgan and the wee girl-child home.”
“But Dad, I don’t know we can protect them both,” Mada said as she grabbed her coat off the hook beside the back door. “It might take more than me and Uaine to look after them both.”
“’Tis not them what need protecting,” Vicar O’Donnell said to his children. “Morgan and her bairn, their fate was always assured. ’Tis Tiernan Doherty what needs protecting. Our Morgan was right about that. To do that, to protect Tiernan, Morgan and the bairn, they need be away from him. If they stay with him now, he’ll learn things he’s not meant to learn. Not just yet. Take Uaine, and hurry now. Before Tiernan figures out what is happened; what he is unwitting party to. He’ll kill Em if he susses it. Then we’ll be at the end of everything we know and hold dear. But not before he has a go at Connor and Morgan herself—for the deception they’ve done to him.”
Mada nodded. She called for Uaine. As she headed out the door, she stopped to ask, “Dad, what about Connor?”
“Connor? Leave him be. He has other work to do. Best not to know about it nor interfere with it,” he said. “Mada, have faith. The girls are safe. Tiernan is not. Connor is not within our reach. Not now, he’s not. Regardless, seeing after the girls will keep Tiernan from doing something unwise, so that is what we must attend to, at the moment. Bring Morgan here, back home to us, where she belongs.”

Indie author Sherry Perkins has a natural curiosity and love for life-long learning. When not on the beach collecting shells or sea glass, she can be found in her garden avoiding the snakes or following the Dave Matthews Band to snake-free venues on the East Coast. During a once in a lifetime visit to Northern Ireland, she was inspired to write the beginning lines to what would become the Will-o’-the-Wisp Stories. The Wisp Stories are serialized tales of well-known folklore, reimagined in a contemporary form with small town sensibility and scientific inquiry added. Books in the Wisp Stories have previously been short-listed for “best in genre” at the Paranormal Romance Guild Reviewers Choice Awards. In addition to the Wisp Stories, she has written blended genre sci-fi thriller and romance, or cozy murder mysteries. Her books invite the reader to imagine what they might do in tough situations and challenge beliefs—because as she learned in Northern Ireland, nothing is what it seems and you really should leave a saucer of milk with a slice of cake at the back gate every night if you want to keep in the good graces of the wee folk (and maybe banish the garden snakes).
