* In the ''Literature/BardicVoices'' series, the Madam of the brothel that Rune gets a job at (as a musician playing in the common room) goes by the name of Amber.

She is a nice person and cares for all her employees, from the serving girls and boys in the common room to the ladies working upstairs.
* Dora Flood in ''Literature/CanneryRow'' is another Steinbeck example. In the sequel ''Sweet Thursday'', her older sister Flora takes over, having changed her name to "Fauna."

* Miss Audrey in the Literature/LiadenUniverse is a brothel owner in the SpaceWestern equivalent of a frontier town. She's a canny businesswoman, and closer to being a respected community leader than the guys who are officially in charge. She even runs a school out of one of the back rooms.
* Patricia Utley in Robert B. Parker's ''{{Spenser}}'' novels, who takes good care of her "girls" and is a successful businesswoman, making sure that she only sends them out to high paying customers like celebrities and politicians.
** Her protegee April Kyle, on the other hand, was doomed from the start (at least in retrospect due to already being pretty fucked in the head before she even became a prostitute).

* A literal Miss Kitty (Katharina "Kitty" Schmidt) operated a luxurious brothel in WorldWarII Berlin, under the guise of the SD (SS's counterespionage department). She had to submit to them, after SS-Brigadeführer [[TheSpymaster Walther Schellenberg]] himself had shown her clearly she had no other choice, charging her with money laundering and trafficking, using forged passports, other crimes linked to money laundering and forgery... and [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold helping Jews to escape Germany]], all of which could mean either a long prison term in a concentration camp or a summary execution at the hands of the SS. The entire house had been littered with state of the art surveillance electronics, and a large percent of the girls trained to register the slightest word which could mean a valuable secret. Despite prostitution being more or less legal in Germany and herself an agent of the state security, her house had always been more or less illegal, with no advertising and entrance via a password, to keep it exclusive and protect the VIP clients (nearly always married) from unfriendly eyes. Count Ciano while in Berlin [[CrazyPrepared used to go ostensibly to a cinema and sneak from the theater after the lights were off]], to avoid anyone who might have snitched him to his all-powerful father-in-law, [[UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini Mussolini]].
