Walker and Lainey share one explosive night together and he awakens to find her gone.  Shrugging it off as just a glorious one night stand, he accepts a new job in a new town--New Hope, Mississippi.  That's where he finds Lainey again.  She just happens to be married to the Chief of Police-and Walker's new boss.

Lainey is terrified that Walker will divulge their secret.  If he does, Lainey is a dead woman.  Because she tried to run before and was forced back by Evan's evil manipulations.  She can't forget her night in Walker's arms.  But she's trapped in a horrible marriage and there is no way out.

Walker demands an explanation from Lainey:  What secret is she hiding?  Why is she so afraid? And when people begin dying in New Hope, he wants to get to the bottom of it.  Why is the police chief trying to brush off the deaths?  Why doesn't he want Walker to work the cases?  What kind of secrets is he hiding?  

They are drawn together, unable to deny their love.  But they are each risking their lives.  Lainey is desperate to escape; Walker is determined to uncover the truth.  Can they expose the secrets before a ruthless man destroys the future they want?

Nice start. With only one chapter read, I know (only a little bit though) about our main characters. 
                              In Belgium we have a saying: "kort maar krachtig" It something like "short but powerful" and describes this exactly.

Normally I would never go for a story like this but something's telling me it's not what I think it is. 
                              Ugh I hate not being able to express myself clear enough.

Very descriptive. I like that you allude to her problems without telling everything. It really draws the reader in.
