* Kinda-sorta in Stephanie Laurens' ''The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae''. The titular earl ''does'' kidnap Angelica Cynster, but she had already set her sights on him as her future husband, ''and'' he only truly keeps her captive long enough to explain why he kidnapped her in the first place (long story short: trying to save his [[BonnieScotland clan]] from his insane mother's EvilPlan). She quickly agrees to help him and the rest of the novel is the two of them working together to thwart his mother's scheme, falling in love all the while.

Added DiffLines:

* This must be what Cohen's relationship with Bethany, in ''Discworld/TheLightFantastic'' looks like from her perspective; ''he'' thinks it's a RescueRomance, and the fact it was an UnwantedRescue is entirely irrelevant.

* ''Literature/AlexisCarew: Mutineer'': Imprisoned by culturally French Hanoverese naval forces after [[spoiler:HMS ''Hermione'''s mutineers sail her to the Berry March (Alsace-Lorraine [-InSpace-])]], Alexis befriends Lieutenant Delaine Thiebaud while arranging better treatment for the crew (who, not being officers, cannot give parole and be housed in the town), and falls in love with him. [[spoiler:He later provides evidence exonerating her of the mutiny at CourtMartial and showing the extenuating circumstances, and in ''The Little Ships'' she seeks him out to gain the Berry March fleet's help against Hanover and loses her virginity with him.]]

* Aral and Cordelia in the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', though it's a borderline case as the actual ''violence'' was perpetuated by a third party without Aral's knowledge or approval and the two of them were forced to [[EnemyMine team up]] and [[DieHardOnAnX die hard on an alien planet.]]

* [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]] and Glittering Goldie in CarlBarks' "Back to the Klondike." Barks himself couldn't believe what he'd implied after Disney's censors pointed it out to him and fully understood why they initially censored the story. Creator/DonRosa, on the other hand, went into even more details about the month Scrooge held Goldie captive working on his gold claim in "[[ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck The Prisoner of White Agony Creek]]," even adding a DestructoNookie scene. [[MemeticMutation Ya know, for kids!]]
