Unfortunately, if the property is in her name and you are not also on title, there is nothing you can do to force her to retain the property or to require her to repay you for the money you invested in the property.
(Unfortunately, title is very important, and the way that title is held is critical to ownership).
Titling the property in her name may have allowed you to avoid whatever credit issues you were facing at the time, but the repercussions of this mean that she now is the title owner of record for the home.
I am very sorry.
