Review

Like an Elizabethan drama in the 21st century, Valentinno's A Romantic's Passion: the Tenth Muse is one of the most unexampled anecdotes of love that will enrapture your heart with old romance. This collection of poetry, prose, essays, and letters are expressions of the poet's most intimate and genuine experiences of love and devotion. Written by, and considered to have approached the language as well composed as the great love poets of the past centuries, this is simply literature at its finest.

  • Book Review Buz


This book is nothing less than genius! I see this wonderful ethereal quality harkening to the romantic era. Valentinno's work reminds me of Byron with a bit of the idealism of Keats.
  • -The Examiner 
"Valentinno is a romantic in the best sense of that word. He captures the divine romance of life through his prose in a brilliant book called "A Romantic's Passion: The Tenth Muse." His words come across as if they were written by a 15th century monk who is high on the spiritual bliss of Holy Communion. One can feel this inner joy and "light" he projects with images from his words and phrasing -

 Valentinno's poetry evokes those same sacred feelings that come from the work of other divine and mystical poets such as Radindranath Tagore, Rumi, and Paramahansa Yogananda in his book of poems called "Whispers from Eternity."

 If he had been born in another time or place, he could have well been friends with the likes of Blake, Shelley, Keats or Lord Byron. This is tall company but I believe that he is of that same kind of romantic DNA

More About the Author

Valentinno got his big break as a screenwriter for film and worked with many of the top film companies. He also spent time as a lyricist for major recording artists. Even as he was becoming more recognized throughout the industry as a prolific writer, he remained unfulfilled. His dream was to be an accomplished author and one day he gathered some of his poetry and letters together and submitted them to a publisher. Not long after that the name Valentinno appeared on a published book. Soon, the love letters and poems of Valentinno were being read and praised by critics, reviewers and casual readers who all commented on Valentinno's strong romantic pulse and mad passionate views. Since being published Valentinno has received numerous awards, and has been asked to compose works for dignitaries around the world including, Queen Elizabeth of England. A Romantic's Passion was also featured at the international writer's conference in Dubai.

I borrowed this book from a friend because she told me that I just HAD to read it. This book is compilation of poetry and photos by Valentinno, a native of Queens, NY who is a master of putting his love and passion for his muse onto paper. This book is a little hard to describe, because I don't think my words can really do it justice. It's a fairly large collection of romantic poems that are just magnificent. Romantics will eat this book up and non-romantics may be romantics after reading this. The easiest way for me to describe this book is to simply say that it makes me want a man to love me half as much as Valentinno loves his muse.

As the times change, poetry remains the same. Especially if one writes from the heart and soul. Valentinno is such an author that writes from the heart and soul. One can see and feel soul kisses from him to his muse. Following along through the book, one enjoys an adventure of love and romance. This is a must buy book!

If there were just two words to describe this collection of romantic poetry and prose, then those two words would be "simply exquisite". There is nothing that I could write that would ever do the work contained between the covers of "A Romantic's Passion: The Tenth Muse" any justice whatsoever.

From the first verse, to the very last picture, I could do little except to become caught up in the magic that was created by this poet. It is no wonder that Valentinno has been compared to Byron and Keats and other great romantic poets.

This is one collection that any romantic should have on hand to read and reread.

Words to entice your lover! The poems, prose, and pictures are interwoven to present a tapestry of love everlasting. I usually zip through books but this book summoned pondering, pausing to catch my breath in the sea of sensuality coupled with spirituality, demanding to be read in candlelight and shared with the love of my heart. Breathtaking! ~ Paula Shene, author [...]

A Romantic's Passion the Tenth Muse is an emotional and inspiring journey of true love. The kind of love that most of us only dream about finding one day, or only see in the movies.

But this book brings hope that it does exist due to it is based on a true story about a poet and the heat of his passion for his muse.

The book is filled with remarkable romantic poems, and love letters that the author has written to his muse through the years. I especially like that Valentinno shares his thoughts about his muse in private journal entries he has published in this brilliant work of romance.

It is amazing how the author put this book together and actually shared his real life romantic experience of love with his readers. It is a wonderful tribute to his muse, and that's what I call a true romantic...a man writing an entire book about his woman to tell the entire world how much he loves her.

This review is for The Romantic's Passion: The Tenth Muse by Valentinno.
From the first line I knew this poetry would be a collection of delicious words. Words to savor long after read. But to put into review what the author, Valentinno, has already done so magnificently would be an injustice, but I will try.

Laced often with spiritual uplifting undertones, this collection of romantic poetry, letters, journal entires, and images, is a must-read for the romantic in all of us. Perfect for that Valentine Day, Wedding Day, Anniversary. Perfect for simply sitting on your porch with a warm cup of tea, enjoying the day.

His poetry feels natural, not forced, and elicits images of Earth, nature, God, the Spirit, eternity, heaven. As if reading words from an old fashioned romantic story book, his poetry transcends time and lifts your spirit to a place of absolute beauty.

"My noble Lady,
I love you with everything I revere. When I draw from your lips to commit that holy sin, it feels like the world has stopped, at that very moment in time. I cannot live without you, my lady, and for that I would give my life."

Highly recommended to the lover in us all, to your significant other, to simply adore the beauty within yourself again.

The unrivaled lyrical styling's of author, Valentinno so eloquently capture the images, words and phrases of 18th century romance in this beautiful love story. I was so caught up in the pages of this book it made me feel like I was actually in another time and place. Valentinno's writing is so unbelievably passionate it's like he possesses the DNA of every classic romantic poet all rolled up in one. I cannot highly recommend this book enough!! It is truly epic!
