Calandra’s Spring by Wendy Rawady

Calandra D’Arcy, trapped in a body that has not aged since pre-puberty, suffers the frustration and loneliness of an adult woman. To survive, she must find a mysterious spring, the source of chemicals needed to bring her back to the age of her long-lost first love, Aaron Kreisler whom she cunningly ropes in to help her quest. Their strategy to beat Big Cosmetics and a Gypsy family – apparently in the Corporation’s pocket – to the site of the spring, involves violence and sexual tension that is far outside their comfort zone.
