THE IMPACT ZONE
Ryder Bay Book #2
BY JORDAN FORD
A nomad. A wallflower. A riptide of romance…
Savannah enjoys living in the shelter of her best friend’s shadow. But when a mysterious accident sends her BFF into a coma, Savannah is left adrift. In search of a hobby to distract her, she takes up surfing but can’t keep her eyes off the hot new guy hiring out surfboards on the beach…
Griffin dreads the impending moment when the life he left behind washes up on shore. But the more time he spends with the irresistible Savannah, the easier it is to ignore his past. As he falls hard for the newbie surfer, he hopes the undercurrent of his secret doesn’t pull them both under.
As Savannah finds her voice, Griffin’s fear forces him to pull away. Can they overcome their past to keep their passion afloat?

4 eggs, separated
4 tablespoons caster sugar
2 tablespoons orange juice
grated rind of 1 orange
125 g (1 cup) Cadbury Dark Cooking Chocolate, melted (5 rows
75 g (2/3 cup) Cadbury Milk Cooking Chocolate, chopped (3 rows)
100g (3/4 cup) Cadbury Dark Cooking Chocolate, chopped (4 rows)
grated rind of 1 orange
75 g unsalted butter
- Make the filling first. In a saucepan bring the cream and chocolate to the boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Cool, then chill for at least 5 hours or preferably overnight.
- Make the cake next. Whip the egg whites with half the caster sugar until stiff.
- Whip the egg yolks with the remaining half of the sugar until thick and pale.
- Into the yolks fold the orange juice and rind, then the chocolate, followed by the stiff egg whites. Pour the mixture into a greased and lined 25 x 30 cm swiss roll pan. Bake at 200 degrees celsius for 15 minutes.
- Turn the cake out onto a sheet of baking paper and starting with a short edge, roll up. Cool.
- Make the icing next. Melt the chocolate with the orange rind. Have the butter very soft, but not melted. Thoroughly stir it into the chocolate. Cool until it starts to thicken.
- To assemble, unroll the cake and remove the paper. Lightly whip the filling, then spread over the cake and reroll. Tighten the roll by pushing a long-bladed knife firmly between the paper and the cake. Cool. Cover with the icing and make markings on the top with a fork to resemble bark.
