Americans have this concept of Scots being "noble brutes", it's why the accent is used for those kinds of characters in cgi kids films. Combine this with the way films only show the countryside and it gives these women a false hope that that Scotland is full of castle-dwelling strapping ginger men in kilts that do traditionally manly things like throw logs and get their hands dirty but will still defend your honor.
It's like how britaboos expect England to one big Victorian boarding school full of foppish gay boys and crumpets.

anon these women know scotland isn't actually like this, that's why these romances are always set in the medieval period, however even then its often not historically accurate and often portrays scots as they are from braveheart >>92783
most likely explanation but outlander had some historical accuracy, Jamie isn't a blue face paint wearing Pictman, he's a proper soldier in Eighteenth century Scotland, which is comparatively not that far back

Precious Heart Romance is a company that publish these kind of books, sadly i have never read one but wanted to name drop them. they used to have a tv show here, iirc usually airs weekly either on a sunday or saturday afternoon with each episode on a different story. although, their popularity died down since wattpad (even before wattpad become mainstream, i think) took over in popularity and demand with live actions movies or series.
there also known for photoshopping celebrities into their covers from american actors to kpop singers.

I'm too lazy for anything intellectually stimulating, so I read a ton of genre romances from my library's overdrive. My favorite premises involve the heroine and hero initially disliking or distrusting each other.
Some regency favorites:
>Then Came You, Lisa Kleypas
>School for Brides, Cheryl Ann Smith
>Never Deceive a Viscount, Renee Ann Miller
>Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, Julia Quinn
>The Escape Diaries, Juliet Rosetti
>Vamps and the City, Kerrelyn Sparks
Sparks' Love at Stake series is pretty fun for vampire romances.
