A good point! However, in my humble opinion I do see a great deal of differences in the Bronte Male charcters and Austen ones. While romance in the main plot does deal with similar situations, the characters are too different.
I do think that Rochester(understanding his past) IS CRUEL and while Darcy does have ample room for this quality(specially when he comes to redeem the Bennet name, by rescuing Lydia's reputation)he resists this urge.
IMHO Darcy and Rochester are more different than similar.
