Dumb and dumber might be subtitle for the two main characters. The hero isn't the brightest bulb on the tree, although supposedly one of the prettiest. An Englishman whose first name is Dane, so repeatedly likened to a Viking god - and indeed his personality is statuesque (think plaster.) He sets out to marry and produce an heir and then decides he really shouldn't have sex with his wife, since he's so over-endowed. Apparently unaware that portion of the female anatomy manages to accomdate birth.. In fact he avoids even meeting his betrothed prior to the wedding, just in case the subject should come up. (Which parlor do they have THOSE conversations in?) The heroine is ditzy and by page 150 I was really tired of her being so foolish and complacent. (Her mother and husband both roll over her repeatedly.) Spy portion of the plot really slow to show up and kinda weak (the international villian now dabbles in party planning?) Really neither character sufficiently engaging to make this a worthwhile read - quite honestly I didn't finish this book.. Even a good writer like Celeste Bradley is allowed one goose-egg, suggest readers just skip this book and move on to her better work..
