* 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.

* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Natsumi enters into the plot with a naked Kotarou behind her and a few inches from digging his claws into her neck ([[NotWhatItLooksLike stop thinking those dirty thoughts]]), Kotarou was just scared after passing out and waking in a strange room. Anyway, guess who Natsumi later gets a crush on and who Kotarou forms a [[FirstKiss Pactio]] with?

* In ''Literature/CaptiveOfTheRedVixen'' it's notable in that the Red Vixen is much more attracted to Rolas than vice-versa. [[spoiler:Until he starts dating her true identity.]]

* This is a way to see General Camus and Princess Nyna's StarCrossedLovers bond in the ''VideoGame/FireEmblemArchanea'' games. From [[StockholmSyndrome Nina's part]], she admits that she first hated him because he was part of the group that killed her family (although not directly responsible) and then during their small time together when she was his country's captive as a political prisoner, she develops very strong romantic feelings for him. From [[LimaSyndrome Camus' part]], he reciprocates her feelings and did put his knighthood on the line to take her to an allied kingdom before she could be executed; this causes him to lose a lot of influence in his kingdom, but he stubbornly refused to abandon his king, even when Nyna begs him to side with the League.

* "Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast" has a nice inversion, because it's the Beast who changes it's behavior, not his captive. This is more a parable of Arranged Marriage than a kidnapping.

* 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.
