We study a family of singularly perturbed -difference-differential equations in the complex domain. We provide sectorial holomorphic solutions in the perturbation parameter . Moreover, we achieve the existence of a common formal power series in which represents each actual solution and establish -Gevrey estimates involved in this representation. The proof of the main result rests on a new version of the so-called Malgrange-Sibuya theorem regarding -Gevrey asymptotics. A particular Dirichlet like series is studied on the way.
