* In ''Literature/StarWarsKenobi'', a SpaceWestern, the {{Deuteragonist}} Annileen Calwell took over her husband's store after he was killed by Sand People, and manages her children, her customers, and her business partner Orrin Gault through sheer force of personality, even as she suppresses her own desires under the daily grind. Ben Kenobi provides a welcome breath of fresh air, but resists their growing feelings out of a combination of Jedi strictures against relationships and the need to protect his secret guardianship of Luke Skywalker.

* Elizabeth Bryant from the ''Series/MurdochMysteries'' episode "Murdoch of the Klondike" runs one of the two hotels in a formerly booming mining town in the Yukon. Murdoch returns to the town from his claim site to find she's been arrested for killing a rival hotel owner. She asserts her innocence, and when she learns he was once a police detective, she wants his help to clear her name--so much that when he initially refuses, she berates him from her cell, shouting "You're NOTHING!" at him as he leaves. Later, after he's bailed her out of jail and started to investigate, she learns he suspects a friend of the deceased who's buying up mining claims and she goes to physically confront the man in a local hotel barroom. Murdoch finally has her return to jail so he can investigate without her "help". In a quieter conversation, Murdoch asks her why she stays, and she cites the fact that her husband is buried there and insists the hotel provides enough of a living for her. She even flirts openly with Murdoch, hoping he'll stay with her, but he demurs.
