I have already returned home from my J1, and have completed 10 months of my 2 year agreement. I don't want to wait another 14 months before I see my Fiancee again! What can I do?

You will not be able to adjust your status to green card holder or even fiancée visa UNTIL and UNLESS you first obtain a waiver of the 2 year foreign residency requirement.
Open your purse and hire a lawyer in the US to help you with the process. You will not be able to succeed on your own. Even with a lawyer there are no guarantees, but you'll stand a much better chance than if you were to try on your own.
