Totally agreeing w/ worldserpent that this is a description of 99% of all US romance novel heroes.

This subtle but deep submission to the object of love by this uber-male

You might be interested in some of the essays in the book Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women. (this is prob like my 5th time reccing it) I liked it especially since the essayists were romance novelists themselves. They touch on several of your points, including the unrealisticness (and RL undesirability) of this type of dude. One of them even makes a comparison between heroines in romance novels and heroines in fantasy novels with romance, though she approaches it fr a diff angle.
