Ah, yes. Thanks. And I'm a fan of that series, too!

> The example that jumps to my mind is the Eve Dallas books by JD Robb, where Eve is absolutely ruthless with herself, e.g. routinely working to exhaustion and collapse, until Roarke starts nurturing her. I'm not sure where that would fit on a feminist spectrum over all. It's quite a few books before Eve learns how to nurture Roarke in return, although she does get there. She also gets emotional support from other friends both male (Feeny) and female (Mavis), although Roarke is the one who really creates massive change in her life.
