This sounds terribly frustrating. I can't say exactly what is happening but there are "the usual suspects". One is a problem called rose bud balling. Here is an article on this: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/what-is-rose-balling.htm
Other suspects are pests which get into the forming bud. Some of these are tiny insects that you can find if you look closely. Anything that stresses a rose will decrease flowering. This could be weather, temps over 90, nutrient deficiency or watering problems. If you are pruning in the fall, which isn't recommended, I wonder if there is some other information about rose care that you are missing. This spring, if the problem returns, please send some pictures along with details of your rose care. Please read this, too: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/no-blooms-on-roses.htm
