Guest Post from Kimberly Loth, Author of "Kissed"

My main character, Naomi, is obsessed with Roses. She grows, breeds, and worships them. I thought I’d share with you five of the best rose gardens in the world. Some of these I’ve been to and the rest are on my bucket list.

  1. Biltmore Estate, North Carolina. I’ve been here personally and spent hours sticking my nose in all the blooms. Definitely worth a visit if you are rose enthusiast and if you are not, its still a cool place to go. https://www.biltmore.com/

  1. Missouri Botanical Gardens, St. Louis, Missouri.
I used to live in St. Louis and this was one of my favorite places to visit. The gardens themselves are huge and it’s just a nice place to relax and walk. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/
  1. The Alnwick Garden, England
I’ve not been here, but it says they have 3000 roses. Sign me up please. I’ll be visiting England next summer and I won’t miss it. http://www.alnwickgarden.com
  1. Regent’s Park. London.
Um, I think I might’ve spoke too soon. This garden boasts 30,000 roses and 400 different varieties. Can you say heaven? Best time to visit is first two weeks in June. http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/the-regents-park
  1. Ruston’s Roses. Australia.
Confession time. I don’t want to visit Australia. Ever. Do you know how many species of snakes, spiders, and jellyfish they have that can kill you? A lot. So, no it’s not on my bucket list. But I might make an exception for this place. 4000 different varieties. 4000! I didn’t even know they had that many kinds of roses and I did a lot of research for Kissed. http://www.rustonsroses.com/
Thank you for having me. If you get a chance, check out Kissed.  http://amzn.to/1oeQAPf
