She's been featured in innumerable national magazines and newspapers, on radio hundreds of times, and on national and regional television.

Nina lives in Dallas, Texas, with her Soul Partner and husband, Mark. From Nina:

"I know what it's like to be single and searching - always picking the wrong kinds of people to date and feeling very frustrated. I did that for years! But I never gave up. Once I put together the essential pieces, it was amazing how easy it was to date smart. Using the unique strategy that I created for myself and now teach to others, I very quickly met my wonderful husband. We've been together for thirteen years (as of 2012), and I couldn't be happier. You deserve that kind of happiness, too. I teach powerful strategies for dating and forming successful relationships to thousands of singles, and you can learn them, too. Isn't it funny how much money we spend making ourselves look right on the outside? But great relationships are an inside job, always have been. If you want yours to improve and if you're willing to try some new ideas and change your behavior, then get my books, read them and follow the advice. Go to my web site and get more information, including personalized coaching if needed. I wish you all the best in your life and in your relationships!"

Format: Paperback
I have read many, many books on relationships and all of them offered their own valuable insights. But "Temptations of the Single Girl" spoke to me in a way that no other "self-help" book has. Reading "Temptations of a Single Girl" has changed my life, for the better. I had just gotten out of a painful 2 year on again/ off again relationship when I found this book. I read it through once, then waited a week and read it through again. I highlighted and underlined passages on just about every page! This book is different, because it SHOWED me what unhealthy relationship choices actually look like between two people instead of just talk and theory. Putting the "emotionally unavailable" behaviors in a concrete context--with Kelly and Martha--really helped me understand what to look for in myself and in men when I'm dating.

"Temptations of a Single Girl" is a "parable" about Kelly, a single woman who has a history of unsatisfying, incomplete, and painful relationships with men. She meets Martha, a relationship "mentor" and guide, and begins a journal through the "temptations" in developing relationships with men. Kelly learns about herself and others as she grapples with the common relationship behaviors and attitudes we have all encountered on our own romantic journeys.

Ever wondered why a guy doesn't call back (you don't need to "remind him" you're still there)? Or why getting sexual too soon (bad idea to get attached to someone you don't really know) or settling for Mr. Close by instead of Mr. Right (if you aren't attracted to him now, then in a year you probably won't be either) doesn't work? This book SHOWS you why it simply won't go anywhere. It challenges you to be as honest with yourself as Kelly is with herself.

If I had read this book sooner, I could have avoided a lot of emotionally difficult relationships. I recognized nearly all my exes in the temptations. After reading it, I felt empowered and wanted more for myself. The next time a temptation came up, I was able to turn it away because I saw it for what it really was...a drain on my time and emotions with no payoff.

I especially liked the section about the 'intentionally' wounded. We are all wounded by bad relationships, but when someone uses that as an excuse for not making an effort or a commitment, they remain intentionally wounded. For years I had been chasing someone who is intentionally wounded. This book helped me realize nothing I can do will make him change because he chooses to stay that way. I was finally able to let it go.

The book gave me a new perspective on dating and did it in a very entertaining way. I saw so many of my own mistakes reflected in Kelly's failed relationships. I found myself cheering along with Kelly hoping she would find Mr. Right and feeling a renewed sense of hope for my own search. I got back my self respect and perspective...thanks! :)

As a single man, I read Temptations to learn more about the female psyche. I found that I had experienced both sides of some of the Temptations in my own relationships. I found it extremely intriguing and well written in a unique format. I am giving several copies of Temptations to some of my women friends who I think will benefit from the book story. This book is instructional reading for single guys too because it provides insight into how women think, what they want, and how to be the kind of man that a good woman will want.

After reading this book, I immediately changed my dating behaviors. I could see how my behavior was hurting the relationships instead of helping. The information in this book makes so much sense, I wish I had read it 20 years ago! I'm definitely taking better care of myself as a result as well. If your single...read it!

This book really hit home in so many ways. It was as though I was reading about my life. It really makes you realize that you are making the same mistakes as most woman do when starting a relationship to dating for several months/years. I dated a man for a 1 1/2 and just recently broke it off with him. I read 4 chapters and realized if I read this book before meeting him we would not have dated more than 3 months. I enjoyed reading and learned so much from this book that I bought 2 for my girlfriend's for their Birthday in April. I also will be buying myself and other girlfriend's a copy. Single Girls, this is a must read book!

This book provides the real life pitfalls of single life for women and how to avoid them. I wish I had read this book 30 years ago. I know of no woman who will not see herself and wish she had read this sooner. Reading as a married woman, I felt more in love and grateful for the blessed relationship I now have! It took me a long time to get these principles- Nina's earlier books helped immensely. Every mother wants their daughter to know these truths, so if you have a daughter, put this book in her hands today. If you are single, read it today - it will change your life.

I'm a Clinical Psychologist in Dallas, Texas and have been in private practice for over twenty years. I will highly recommend this book to all of my clients that are searching for a committed relationship. I wish I had had it available to recommend over the past years. It's a great book with wonderful ideas, clearly explained, simple to implement (notice I said simple, not necessarily easy). If you keep coming back to that same dead-end place in yet another relationship, wondering "How did I end up here again", this book was written for you. If you're just starting out in the dating world, this book could help you to avoid many of the pitfalls that bring people to my door.
