All roses take a little breather now and then especially in the hotter weather. When the weather cools, the blooms will return in abundance. Keep them watered well and fed. You can give them some water with a product called super thrive and some root stimulator in it the next 4 to 5 times they need water. This will give them a bit of a boost and the super thrive helps them deal with any stresses they may be dealing with. All roses love Kelp Meal as well. So if you have not done so, sprinkle a cup of kelp meal at the base of each rosebush, work in lightly and water in well. This will help the new growth to come in that leads to new buds and blooms.
