The Outlander family adds two new members: Actors César Domboy and Lauren Lyle have been cast in season 3, currently filming, as grown-up pickpocket Fergus and Laoghaire's daughter Marsali, respectively, per the show's official Twitter account. Fans of the books know these two share a bond, so it's appropriate to see their casting announced side-by-side. Too early to say whether they have the right mannerisms, but what do you say: Do they have the right looks? (P.S. If you still hate Laoghaire...try to see her side of things!)

Can you hear her Roar? New Adult romance author Cora Carmack is gearing up to take YA fantasy by storm with her next novel, whose tag line reads “In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.” See the cover and read an excerpt from Roar, out June 13 of next year, over at USA Today's HEA blog. In the meantime, her book Losing It is still one of our 10 New Adult Romance Books You Should Read.
