Hi there,
  Is there any way i could get alert from SQL server if the particular login is attempted in SQL server?

Eg., particular User named "Robin" attempts to login SQL server , then can i setup an Alert mechanism which should send an email to me stating "Robin" has logged in to our database server.

If yes, please share me the scripts/steps to setup the same.

Note: My environment running with SQL server 2008 R2 service pack 2 enterprise edition.

thanks
Deepak

The mechanism that you want is Logon Trigger. With that you can test the login name and send an email if it matches what you want. Something like:
CREATE TRIGGER login_check ON ALL SERVER 
FOR LOGON  
AS  
BEGIN  
IF ORIGINAL_LOGIN()= 'Robin' 
    EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail  
        @profile_name = 'SQL Server',  
        @recipients = 'firstname.lastname@companyname.com',  
        @body = 'Robin just logged in SQL Server',  
        @subject = 'Logon' ; 
END;
