Summary

An alpha should never need a backup plan. But Henry Amiraut was no ordinary alpha....

After years of running gangs on the streets of Portland, Henry Amiraut was finally in charge of a pack of his own. But when the secret he’d been keeping for over 10 years was brought to light, his once loyal pack turned on him and cast him out. Now, hunted and alone, Henry must do whatever it takes to survive. 

Louis LaFavre is an alpha who is no stranger to accepting lone wolves into his pack. But he never expected to welcome another alpha, especially one like Henry. Not only is he the former alpha of a rival pack, but those hunting him are closing in fast and Louis will have to make a decision that could not only decide Henry’s fate, but threaten the safety of his own pack. Is love worth the risk? 

Together, Louis and Henry must discover whether their love is enough to conquer their demons, and work together to outsmart, and out-wolf their enemies. 

Hunted Alpha is a gay shifter romance with steamy erotic scenes, danger, and personal darkness overcome by love and acceptance. This book contains themes of male pregnancy/mpreg and transgender issues and is best enjoyed by those over the age of 18.

Needs work

I wanted to enjoy this book; especially as it’s an interesting premise and I think having a trans lead character represented in a book is a great step forward in modern culture. However, it’s really crucial to have a good plot and to make the chemistry and interactions between characters feel authentic and real. This book just didn’t hit the mark and it felt more like the author was focused on communicating a message rather than actually making a good story. The characters don’t even know each other and all of a sudden they’re in love?! The villain was just too pantomime-like and eye roll worthy.

I’d suggest the author reads a load of books and sees what it is about them that makes them special, how they go about introducing characters, what gives depth and hooks the reader in, how you balance the plot with whatever other message you might want to communicate. Yes, love and acceptance is an important message, as is representing trans characters as a lead role. However, it would be much more powerful if the plot itself carried the story, and the character happens to be trans. That would do far more good in representing trans in an acceptant world and would open readers’ eyes and minds to a different reality.

I hate all the inflated reviews out there when readers like the fact that a minority group is represented so give a book 5 stars, as I think it’s crucial to give accurate reviews with constructive feedback. How else will readers ever find the genuinely great books if they’re all rated highly? How is that going to help support the representation of minority groups in books if any books featuring such characters are given preferential and inaccurately high ratings? Everyone should be rated in an equal way, then just happen to sing the author’s praises if they raise the profile or awareness of something close to their heart.

I’ve listened to over 1300 audiobooks from all sorts of genres (...yes I may have an unhealthily obsession with audiobooks!) Of these, I’ve enjoyed the following books which all feature m/m relationships (not an exhaustive list - just off the top of my head). None feature a trans character which is why I was hoping to find a book that did to add to the list, but perhaps the author could read/listen to them and get a bit of direction or ideas for themselves? Some of these feature werewolves, but most are just books to show how relationships can develop on page.

An Alluring Indulgence series by Nicole Edwards (each book features different relationships m/f, m/m, m/m/f)
Love in Laguna series by Tara Lain
Made Marian series by Lucy Lennox
Pelican Bay series by Sloane Kennedy

Some of those are truly fantastic listens, and others are softer easy listens that are just sweet and a nice way to pass an evening. My ratings for them range from 3 stars to 5 stars.

As far as a good werewolf/shifter romance books go, Suzanne Wright’s Phoenix Pack series or Dannika Dark’s Seven series are good - both of which feature m/f relationships. Useful for seeing what formula they use though.

The narrator was decent ..though it was incredibly annoying when he said “end of chapter X” at the end of each chapter. Really not necessary as it’s pretty obvious when the next thing said is “chapter X” for the start of the next one. Seems like an editor issue maybe? Not heard it on a book before.

fantastic story

Hunted Alpha is a Gay Transgender Romance by Troy Hunter and Noah Harris. It is the second book in The Transgender Mates series. The narration is do by Bryce Chadwell. Both the authors and narrator did great jobs at bringing these great characters to life and tell their intriguing story.

I have not seen many transgender pregnancy books, this is I believe only the second one I have personally read and I am glad I chose to. The story was a fantastic mix of drama, humor, and romance. It dealt with some discrimination and identity issues found in the transgender community but with a shifter twist to the story. Thw characters were likeable and I loved how they interacted together. I highly recommend this book.

The narrator does a good job bringing out the personalities of the characters and adding an extra layer of enjoyment to thie story. Well done.

Love always find you at the most unexpected hours!

Although this is not my first rodeo to TransTown, I think I can honestly say that this definitely is my first trans werewolves. 😁 And wow, what a well-written, heartwarming romance it is! ❤️ I went into this audio with certain ideas and opinions and man, I was very pleasantly surprised. 😌


Henry has built his life up as a pack leader Alpha and a renowned surgeon from ground zero. But he has the biggest skeleton in the closet that his pack doesn’t know. He was born Henrietta and he is an omega. When his pack finally found out about the truth, they hunted him down and tried to kill him instead of welcoming and embracing him with understanding arms. And now, he’s on the verge of death and all hopes have lost. And then just when he thought he’s dying, he was rescued by Louis, the rival pack leader and archenemy of Henry. Now if Henry wants a chance at ultimate happiness, he has to trust himself and trust in Louis, the enemy who showed him the kindness and the understanding he’s never seen from anyone else.


If you are looking for heat, this might not be a good fit for you because this is a slow-burn romance with lots of delicious UST between two MCs. I fell in love with Henry because of his bravery and the will to never give up even in the shittiest situations. And Louis is a dream man, kind, understanding, loving and protective. 🥰 And the ending was just perfect. ❤️ When I stated reading MM romance, Noah Harris was one of my earliest discoveries and I used to binge his books. And like a child who chases after new candies, I got lost in so many new authors and I forgot how good his books are. I really have to start reading/listening more Noah Harris. Bryce Chadwell is a new-to-me narrator but he did a great job narrating this story. It was really enjoyable. A solid heartwarming romance book for anyone who’s looking for something unique and refreshing in ABO sub-genre. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Near death the Maine pack leader Louis gives him sanctuary, only finding out who he is after taking him in. Loved the enemy to lovers theme. This book made me laugh with Louis and Henry surprises! Teaser "Death by LINCOLN LOGS!" The narrator did very good good.Thank you for a wonderful read.

Interesting storyline

I liked the transgender premise but I felt the story was too short and rushed along towards the end.
