I finished the book as soon as I posted that, and have dodged forums like the pale mare (geek puns for the win) to prevent spoilers. But looking it up that seems to be the general consensus.
They are grey, but like most genetics aren't black hair in the mix likely to overpower the fairer Targaryen genes? In exaple, most of the Bratheon household have Targaryen blood in them, yet all have the dark and handsome features with blue eyes. I could pose why the Targaryens wed brother and sister as cross breeding resulted in no Vallyrian features and they were the recessive genes.
It would also explain Ashara's suicide (Daynes sister) not that she killed herself because she loved Ned and he was married, as a noble lady she was probably under the mind set that she wouldn't marry for love anyway. Instead she told Ned where Lyanna was after the fall of Storm's End and couldn't accept she was responsible for her brothers death.
Also read a cool theory that Howland Reed warged into Arthur Dayne, and that's how he saved Neds life, which I doubt probably just netted him or poisoned him but would be nifty.
Thanks to Leakler for the sig
