Have you tried a seed-starting mat to provide low heat under the starting medium? This article has more information: http://hortscans.ces.ncsu.edu/library/floriculture/doc_id/3541/Commercial-Production-of-Exacum.pdf

Q. Persian Violet – Exacum

Friend left hers outside and we had frost in the middle of May. Is the plant dead or is there a way to nurse it back to health?

A Persian Violet can tolerate temperatures as low as 40 degrees F.
You can try pruning back the dead or cold damaged parts of the plant and wait and see it the roots survived.

Q. Persian Violets Care

Hello, I read your article about Persian Violets as I have recently bought one.
What I would like to know, is if the “after blooming stage” is completely necessary for the plants survival, or if it is simply to ensure reblooming?
My sincerest regards.

Yes the plant needs to die back naturally and a rest period.
