* In ''High Profile'', one of the Literature/JesseStone novels, Jesse's ex-wife Jenn winds up being guarded by Jesse's current squeeze Literature/SunnyRandall after she's assaulted, and much to Jesse's relief they get along quite well and without the hostility this trope tends to result in. Sunny is also the person to [[spoiler:convince Jenn that she needs to get therapy after it's revealed that she wasn't actually assaulted, just threatened with it, and that she's still not over Jesse]].
