Check your alignment in "Stroke Options." If it is set to inside (the top setting) your stroke will not show.

In Photoshop pressing return will delete the line. That is normal. There's no need to press return when drawing a line. In the Options bar, you can choose Path, Shape, or Pixels. If you choose Pixels, pressing return will not delete the line, but on the other hand, the line will be bitmap instead of vector.

Which tool are you using to draw the lines and which setting are you choosing in the Options bar?
