I'm two for two today with Alissa Johnson's "McAlistair's Fortune" as my second gem of the day! This is a wonderful historical brimming with snappy dialogue, humor, heart-warming romance, a tortured hero, and a not-so-perfect heroine.

Evie's always been pretty sure that love and marriage weren't in her future. She does, after all, have a facial scar and a limp as a result of a carriage accident when she was a young girl. So she's turned her life towards different pursuits and helping abused women and children escape from their tormentors. But one night she 'overhears' (with her ear against a door mind you) a plot to find her a husband via a bogus threatening letter situation for her 'hero' to then save her from. And shortly later when she receives receives a real threat in the mail, she assumes it's all for show. And it's almost worth it when she realizes she'll get to spend time with the infamous Hermit of Haldon Hall. Especially since they once shared a romantic kiss!

McAlistair is a man tortured by his past actions...he was an assassain for the war department. When he 'quit' he became a hermit, living in the woods in silence and alone...then one day he heard a woman laughing and his world changed. He knows he's not the right man for her, but he's also determined that he will protect this woman with every skill he ever learned.

How romantic! Neither the hero or heroine is perfect, titled, ultra-rich, gorgeous, etc.; instead both are real people with real flaws. Johnson did a fabulous job writing a gradually unfolding closeness and intimacy between these two. There's even humor which they both need in their lives.

Finished it late last night and wanted to just let the story rest, not get out of bed to write a review. Here are the basics: the main characters were great; the romance sooo enjoyable; the mystery subplot somewhat rushed and random at the end, but oh well; and overall a wonderful read!

One thing I appreciated was that both characters were honest about their feelings for the other - if not with one another, than at least with themselves. So often the character is supposedly oblivious to anything besides for lust until the second to last chapter when suddenly, *EPIPHANY*! "I'm in love with her/him! Oh wow!" No really, dumbo?

Don't worry, there are still plenty of complications and resistance and doubts and etc., but they were - for the most part - very well done. From the beginning there is a deep and heady connection between McAlistair and Evie and it only continues to grow as they spend more time with one another. Each has (real) doubts and insecurities, but they only serve to strengthen the relationship in the end. Some of these issues were resolved a little too quickly IMHO, and should have been brought up earlier so that they could be fully discussed and resolved.

HERO, Mr. James McAlistair (? - which was really annoying!):
Wednesday I was in love with Loretta Chase's Alistair, Thursday I was in love with Alissa Johnson's Whit ... and yesterday McAlistair replaced them both!! (Maybe I have something for the name Alistair). Like lonely, silent, mysterious, and tortured heroes? Well go no further! McAlistair is extremely sigh-worthy and his deep love and longing and hunger for Evie will give you goosebumps (and make you extremely jealous, lol).

McAlistair's Fortune has a nice hero and heroine and decent plot. There were times it moved a bit slowly but overall it was an entertaining read.

Heroine Evie is a resolute twenty-six year old spinster set upon never marrying. It is only later in the novel that the reader truly understands her aversion to the marriage state and in some ways it would have been nice to know some of her past earlier. Her actions would have been easier to understand. Evie has wonderful but meddlesome relatives who do want to see her married and she eavesdrops upon a scheme to find her a husband. She overhears bits and pieces of a plan to have her future husband rescue her from imminent danger.

Soon Evie receives a threatening letter and she believes it is all a plot cooked up by her well meaning family to further their marriage plans for her. Brought in to guard her is hero McAlistair. He lives a life almost as a hermit and has been secretly in love with Evie for years but she has no idea of his feelings.

Evie and McAlistair are forced to travel alone together and during this time Evie tries to engage the very taciturn McAlistair into a conversation lasting more than two sentences. She is not too successful but she is spontaneous and fun loving and the complete opposite of her bodyguard.

McAlistair is a former soldier and has a boatload of baggage from his past. He does long for Evie and this is what drives the romance. His noble self is in a constant struggle with his selfish desires. Evie is unaware of this at first but then she smartly realizes that McAlistair has some feelings for her.

The best parts of this book are when McAlistair shares his past with Evie and when he explores his emotions also.
